BBC plans iPlayer pre-booking

The BBC plans to introduce a pre-booking feature to its iPlayer service, enabling users to queue those shows they want to see up to a week before they air.

The system will be set up in such a way as to minimise the load on the network, with shows set to download at an "optimum time for the user, the UK internet and the BBC," the BBC says.

The new feature is only in the planning stage. Proposals to put the plan into effect have been put to the BBC Trust, which must give its permission for the feature to be introduced.
