BBC Worldwide programmes available on MySpace

BBC Worldwide has signed a deal with MySpace to make its programmes available to the social networking site’s users. Under the agreement a dedicated BBC Worldwide channel on MySpace’s video service, MySpace TV, will show 150 clips of BBC programming.

The new channel will be divided into seven areas: comedy; drama; science fiction; weird and wonderful; love earth; famous faces; and the motoring programme Top Gear.

Users will be able to watch the clips on MySpace TV, share them with friends and add them to their MySpace profiles. The BBC content will be made available from today (January 24) in 27 countries.

Most of the clips will not appear for six months after airing on the BBC terrestrial channel. This is due to the first “rights window” for programming held by the BBC’s iPlayer on-demand TV service.
