Introducing trailers on BBC iPlayer

I like the catch Up services, and use them more and more these days, basically anything that doesn’t time me to a specific time (commitment) and allows me to avoids Adverts gets my vote!

So I was genuinely interested to read on the BBC Internet Blog (be honest did you know they had one) that they have just announced a new feature designed to help you discover the best shows available from across the BBC.

Since BBC iPlayer launched on Christmas Day 2007, we’ve been continually innovating to bring you new features, functionality and programmes to make iPlayer the best on-demand service of its kind in the world.

As you might have seen, we unveiled a number of new features this summer to make iPlayer even better and tailored to you, through the launch of My Programmes and recommendations based on what you’ve watched and what’s of interest to you. And last month BBC Store was launched – a new service fully integrated with iPlayer to allow you to buy and keep BBC TV shows to watch whenever you like and play them back either on BBC Store or on BBC iPlayer.

They have rolled out a new feature that will mean you may see a single short trailer play automatically when you select a programme to watch on iPlayer. It may be obvious to say, but these will be for BBC programmes only. You’ll be able to watch all the trailed shows on iPlayer once they’ve been on TV, and many will already be there on iPlayer – only a click away.
