flagship channels are getting all hip and with it, and will be
available to watch live on the Internet from next week.

BBC 3, 4,
News and the kids’ channels CBBC and CBeebies are already
streamed onto their own websites, and from next Thursday the big boys
will join the simulcasting set.

"From
27 November licence fee payers will be able to watch BBC programmes
live wherever they are in the UK on their computers, mobile phones
and other portable devices," proclaimed Director of BBC vision
Jana Bennett.

Since
Channel 4 kicked off simulcasting two years ago, the concept has
lifted off – Ofcom surveys show that the number of people
watching TV on the net has doubled in 12 months.
