This week we take another look at the BBC iPlayer, which appeared to have a good Christmas, boosted by binging on ‘box set’ series. Yet the annual increase in monthly ‘requests’ was a relatively modest 11%. If we look at viewing time as now reported by BARB it appears to have taken a dip and then risen to the around the same level as the previous year. It also seems to be a lot less than the numbers reported by the BBC. I wonder if any of our regular readers at BARB or the BBC can shed any light on this.
