BBC’s CBBC iPlayer is a huge success


BBC's CBBC iPlayer is a huge success

The video player on BBC’s website, formally known as the iPlayer, has had a tremendous amount of success overseas. This is particularly true when you factor in the influence of the CBBC, the children’s portion of the network, home to many of the great animated series. With the CBBC iPlayer, fans can catch all of their favorite episodes in full, directly on the website, for about a week after they appear on TV. A number of shows live on for a few months, allowing fans to “catch up” on what they’ve missed. Amongst these shows are: Bears Behaving Badly, Skunk Fu, Raven, Kerching!, Dennis the Menace – Dennis and Gnasher, Arthur, and many other hit shows. Despite regional issues (some locations are unable to view the videos) it’s since become a major success. How much of your toon-enjoyment is found online?
