BoB (Box of Broadcasts) National - advance notice of upgrade!

We thought we'd give you advance notice of some exciting new features coming to our BoB (Box of Broadcasts) National subscription - later this year.

BoB is an innovative shared online off-air TV and radio streaming service which allows you to view, record and archive programmes, create and share playlists, etc.

These new developments are in response to feedback from users and will be launched later this year.  They include:

  • a new website look, including colour, theme, functionality and improved navigation

  • access to more than 500,000 new BBC TV and radio programmes, dating from 2007
  • an additional 13 foreign language channels
  • an extended recording buffer – giving you more channels, available for longer
  • the ability to search across future and recorded programmes simultaneously
  • interactive transcripts and dynamic subtitle searches
  • Apple iOS compatibility
  • the ability to easily create clips and clip compilations, and share programmes and playlists via social media
  • the option to make YouTube-style comments on programmes
  • a quick link to the new BUFVC AV Citation Guidelines, allowing you to reference programmes within your work easily
More information will be posted here, as the upgrade happens.
