Five Allows Legal Sharing of Programmes – Leaves iPlayer Behind

5Bless Five.

The TV channel has just got with the share-love and has inked a deal with online video platform ‘Brightcove‘.  This deal let viewers embed and share its content on any website – just like you can do with a YouTube video!


This leaves BBC iPlayer a bit behind which is odd as iPlayer has been the groundbreaker thus far.

As part of a new deal, you’ll soon be able to place Five TV shows on blog posts, completely free and completely legally – Bonus!

Five is reportedly hoping to sign deals with partners like Facebook before 2010, but will offer Brightcove videos before then on and FiveFWD.

So, Aunty Beeb – what’s your next move?  😉
