The BBC has launched a facility to view current affairs programmes online via it's News Player web application.
Aside from giving you all the latest news in video and audio, the News Player is now home to the best BBC News programmes live and on demand - freely available to UK based web users in broadband quality video.
The new service means users can enjoy Newsnight, Panorama, Question Time, This World and Real Story whenever they want. We hope to add more programmes in the near future.
Head of BBC Current Affairs Peter Horrocks said: "Broadband is also key to shifting from the one-way lecturing by broadcasters to two-way conversations with audiences.
"In the future, we'd like to nurture more of a collaborative relationship with viewers, sharing material and ideas more freely."
What do you think about the BBC's coverage of news and current affairs online? Is there anything they could do to improve it? Is it good quality, better than other news networks online coverage?
It would be nice if some of the regions would avail their content in glorious broadband. Having to watch the regional news in "glorious 1fps RealMedia" just isn't the same.
Personally, I'll probably tune in to broadband Panorama if there's compelling subject matter that I've missed, but I can't imagine that broadband Newsnight will be especially popular.
