BBC Store to sell digital DVDs for ownership

Thursday 30 July 2015 | 10:55 CET | News
The BBC will make 10,000 hours of programming available to download as 'digital DVDs' through BBC Store from autumn 2015, Digital Spy reports. A BBC Worldwide spokesperson said that it made sense to offer BBC programmes for ownership, adding that programmes will still be accessible for free for 30 days through iPlayer. BBC Store users will only be able to purchase content that has already appeared on the BBC. They will not have to buy a subscription, only paying for individual episodes or series. Further details be released in the coming weeks.
