Now it’s ITV’s turn.
Their revamped ITV.com website will feature an exclusive daily “made for broadband” show from UK documentary maker Roger Graef, with each three-minute episode featuring members of the public offering a snapshot of their lives.
ITV will also offer old game shows (think Blockbusters, Catchphrase, and Family Fortunes), plus live sporting coverage and highlights, and a news site focusing heavily on user-generated content.
“Today we are combining the best of TV with the best of the web to create a service unrivalled by any other commercial broadcaster, anywhere in the world,” said ITV executive chairman Michael Grade. “Some are already streaming their channels, some are providing catch-up, and some building their archive, but ITV.com will provide all three.”
No further information is yet available on exact content, or how much it will cost consumers to access it.
