UKTV to lauch catch up VOD service.

UKTV are going to launch a free online catch up service for Dave, Really and Yesterday on their website, seems just in time for Red Dwarf X.

From c21 Media

UK multichannel operator UKTV has thrown its hat into the video-on-demand ring, revealing plans to launch of a trio of branded services.

The BBC Worldwide (BBCWW) and Scripps Networks Interactive-owned broadcaster will launch bespoke VoD services for its free-to-air diginets Dave, Yesterday and Really, its CEO Darren Childs revealed today.
The services will offer a “curated” selection of catch-up and archive content that can be accessed through each channel’s website.

Dave On-Demand and Yesterday On-Demand will launch in beta in early October, with Really On-Demand’s to begin testing shortly after. Full launches will follow later this year. UK-based digital agency Capablue supported the development of the players.

UKTV’s channels have experienced significant growth this year, driven largely by FTA gains on male-skewed comedy net Dave, modern history channel Yesterday and lifestyle-themed Really.

This comes hot on the heels of recent VoD deals to launch on Sky Anytime, IPTV service BT Vision and on YouView in the near future via telco TalkTalk.

“UKTV is investing more money in content than ever before and it is important we are servicing our viewers by enabling them to access Dave, Yesterday and Really directly for the very first time, through our on-demand players – three vibrant and curated, direct to viewer, player services,” said Childs.
I've also read after full launch they intend to release apps for phones, tablets and consoles so it will be up there with BBC and Channel 4 for availability. Which will be good because I always forget about the UKTV channels, tucked away on Freeview when I rarely switch over from my Freesat+ box.
And their call for war on poverty is a smokescreen we don't need, cos the only war worth fighting for is a war on their pure greed. : Acid Country - Paul Heaton
