The Guardian have reported today that the BBC is planning to put more broadcast content onto the web following the successful trial of comedy series The Mighty Boosh.

The BBC is to accelerate plans to broadcast programmes and entire channels on the internet and on mobile phones, using popular shows such as Doctor Who in a series of pilots designed to assess public demand.

‘Ahead of the Media Guardian Edinburgh Television Festival, which begins today, the BBC's director of television, Jana Bennett, said she was asking programme makers, commissioners and schedulers to get to grips more rapidly with the evolution in technology. She said consumers were ahead of broadcasters in their take-up of new technology. "The wake-up call was also the much anticipated Doctor Who arriving on people's screens over the internet via a leaked DVD from Canada."
