Make my life easy ?

I missed to watch the episode "The Apprentice" last Wednesday and I was checking on the when you would be the repeat telecast. The repeat telecast scheduled on Saturday at 11:40 pm . Today is Sunday.... I missed it also. When I was search on the BBC website, I came across BBC iPlayer.

It says, "Making the unmissable, unmissable". Woh. I was able to watch the entire episode on the internet.

Quick lesson from the experience:
  • BBC will retain its customer
  • BBC encourages its customer to try out new experience and technology
  • BBC sells its programs through another medium i.e. internet and explores the opportunities to grow its viewership base.
  • BBC initiatives will drive its competitors to innovate or they will perish.
