BBC Promise TV
It looks like the BBC is finally going to put up some competition to TIVO and Sky Digital. They are working on technology that will automatically record 7 days of television. This means all TV will effectively be on demand and you’ll never miss that favourite show again.
I’ve also heard rumours (from a respected source) that channel 4 are planning to make all of their archive program footage available on the web in the near future so you’ll finally be able to watch the one Simpson’s episode that you’ve missed which never seems to be repeated.
