BoB is back - bigger and better!

BoB (Box of Broadcasts) National, our online TV and radio streaming subscription, is available again, after an extensive upgrade.

Improvements in searching and viewing have been made, and exciting new functionality includes:
  • searchable subtitles - increase your search results
  • sort and filter - filter results by TV/radio channel and date; or sort by date, relevance, and title
  • regional broadcasts - BBC1 and BBC 2 Scotland programmes are now included
  • curated playlists on the access page eg A Brief History of Mathematics, The Middle East, etc
  • higher bitrate now means improved video quality
  • subtitles are now bigger and easier to read
  • video tutorials on recording programmes, creating playlists and clips, etc
  • coming soon - a trial to allow local ERA-licensed off-air recordings to be uploaded to BoB National; more information will follow
More information about BoB National.

The BUFVC is keen to get get feedback on these improvements - please e-mail your comments to bob@bufvc.ac.uk
