BBC iplayer

Ed­i­tor’s Award for Spe­cial Con­tri­bu­tion to TV

TV Times - - Tv Times Awards 2018 -

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.’
