BBC Imp is fabulous

I have been 'lucky' enough to be one of the testers of the soon to be released BBC interactive media player (iMP). 24 hours later and I am hooked! It is the equivalent of a Sky+ box but for BBC channels only (both TV, radio and HDTV formats) available for free on the internet.

I am not usually a tv watcher (believing there is pure nonsense available). However, when one is able to pick programmes and download them with ease and never miss an episode, on the Net, this is fab. Most of my time is spent on the computer anyway so this is perfect.

The only premise is that the programme has to have aired already on 'proper' tv and you can pick and choose up to the last seven days. You even get to rate the programmes. We all love a bit of rating don't we?

For once I have something great to say about the lovely BBC!

Go iMP.

Ooh, I blogged about this the other day and it has to be said I'm jealous.

The concept is great (except why a 7 day limit? :-( ) but I was a bit worried the execution might be poor but reading your review makes me wish I was on the trial too!
