Editor’s Award for Special Contribution to TV
With on-demand TV more popular than ever, our Editor’s Award for Special Contribution to TV goes to a star performer: BBC iplayer.
This year, the service has had a record-breaking number of programme requests for BBC shows. The box set of hit drama
Bodyguard is the service’s biggest success to date.
‘When we launched, watching on-demand was a novel concept,’ says BBC directorgeneral Tony Hall
(right), who accepted the award. ‘Today, millions turn to iplayer. We are reinventing the service for a new generation, transforming it into a destination where you’ll be entertained with box sets, live events and more
programming in Ultra HD.’
