The Times endoreses the BBC News AV Player for it’s “online innovation”

In a round up of Internet developments in 2004, The Times has endorsed the BBC News AV Player that I built for it’s “online innovation”.

The nation?s most popular website has long been excellent in parts, but the BBC?s dedicated broadband section has proved a thin offering ? until now. The BBC News AV console has evolved into an on-demand portal to the audiovisual treats that litter the site: highlights from news, sport and the weather have been combined with the acclaimed radio player. Alongside live streamed footage of events such as the Olympics, you can catch up with a missed episode of I?m Sorry I Haven?t a Clue, watch reports on devolution in Northern Ireland, relive Saturday?s goal highlights and check on the likelihood of rain. The choice of streaming speeds, including a sumptuous full-screen option, delivers the broadband promise without leaving slowcoaches behind.

I guess I should be pleased, but seeing as I hate the damn thing, I’m not. But well done to everyone else who worked on the project – most of whom are very pleased with it!
