      Yes, with the various iPlayers you get 3-7 days to watch it. The On Demand Library is different in that you get anything from 3 months to nearly a year to watch, provided it is not iPlayer content.

      What has changed is that now the other providers have access to be able to add their content to the list of available programmes and films which we as customers can download.

      Primarily the content goes into their section, but some of it is also available in the Library too.
      I thought that was the case. The only times shows are saved from automatic deletion is when you record via the planner. Also hitting record on a programme in Showcase can keep it as well.

      Good point, they expire 7 days after the last of the series. Just looked and New Tricks expires on 5 Nov, Inspector Montalbano on 17 Nov and Hunted on 29 Nov.

      But with all of those you still get a minimum of 30 days to start viewing on iPlayer Desktop + 7 days more if you view and pause it!

      Just noticed all of the episodes of Merlin will be available until 31st December. Hopefully, now that Catch Up services are becoming more widely available, we may look forward to longer and longer expiry dates. In other words, the broadcasters will start negotiating a bit more aggressively with the rights holders on behalf of us viewers. I am getting so sick of the old excuses for restricting availability. It has to be just as much in the interests of the rights holders to get their material shown as widely as possible as it is in the interests of the providers . What on earth is the point of antagonising potential viewers by making them jump through hoops in order to get at the stuff?

      One good sign is that there has been a big change in the way these rights holders approach the sales of DVD/Blu-Rays, not least of which is a significant reduction in prices over recent years. Did people really pay 23.99 for the SD DVD of Titanic back in the late 90's??. No wonder piracy became such a boom industry .

      Not with episode 1. I noticed that was gone a few days ago.

      Pity they don't do series catch-up like with the web version. Slightly confusing that those episodes are there and not the first one. I wonder if it's a mistake at the other end?

      Yeah, probably since it's the same on the website.

      Yes I noticed that on the website just after I posted. Very odd not to have episode 1 there and yet all of the others will be there until December 31st. Makes no sense.

      One thing I really do like about iPlayer is that I can watch the news on it. You can't download with the web version and have to watch a stream which can stutter. I love being able to watch through the Sky box when I've just missed it. Can take awhile for the One, Six and Ten to show up though.

      Yes, I watched Click yesterday for the first time in ages. Terrible lip-sync though.

      I've noticed sometimes with downloads, in general not just iPlayer,that they can be out of sync. Try pausing and starting again or rewinding and starting again. That usually stops that problem.
