BBC World
Note that there was a YouTube channel called 'BBC on Google Play' operated by BBC WW Australia. I think it is now renamed 'BBC Store Australia', presumably since the announcement made by the BBC about the Store UK.

Rather cheeky of them to have Red Dwarf up for purchase, but use a promo pic from the Dave series instead of one of their own. They also brag about it still being BBC 2's longest running sitcom... and it could have been even longer if they didn't dump it despite it still getting 8m viewers a week. They'd kill for those kind of numbers these days.

Do BBC Worldwide handle sales for the Dave version? If so I can understand how the wrong image was used? I'm guessing BBC WW are also running the BBC Store.

The BBC Shop website is still in operation, I wonder if both will eventually merge?

BBC Shop is cheaper than the BBC Store on some titles.


And the Blu-ray and DVDs will almost certainly be higher quality than the digital download versions. (Looks as if BBC Store is sub-iPlayer quality for HD at 3Mbs rather than the iPlayer 5.166Mbs on web browsers and ~8Mbs on Sky+HD boxes. I'm guessing 720/25p...)

As far as I can tell there's no extras, I'm pretty sure the Red Dwarf DVD sets have behind the scenes documentaries for example. Of course it's the convenience of downloads that wins out for many.
