Beeb Unveils Video Plans

Plans for a local video online network to serve the UK regions have been made public by the BBC.

The corporation is proposing to create a network of about 65 local websites to provide on-demand video news.

And the plans include a fund of £800,000 which would be used to buy video content from other news providers, according to Journalism.co.uk.

The BBC says it would also make its own video packages available to other news sites to embed on their pages.

The plans have been met with criticism by the Newspaper Society, which is outlined in its initial response.

Further details on the proposals can be found in this Guardian article from last month.
