Basically, the iMP (above) lets you download any BBC programme from the last seven days and watch it on your PC. If you have a certain mobile device as well, you can transfer the programme to that.
I’d read about a lot of bugs and things like that in the software, but for me it seems to have worked perfectly first time. You can watch trailers of shows, do a simple search, and then start downloading.
You can see me downloading the latest episode of River City above. Anyway, the video quality is really good, and I think if the trial works, and the software’s released, iMP could be very very handy. The only really annoying thing is that there’s no version for Macs as yet. I would love to be able to watch shows on my way into work on the latest iPod!
