BBCi on Freesat Launched!
Yep, it all happened smoothly and BBCi on Freesat is go.Although I’ll let you into a little secret – we’d been broadcasting it for several weeks anyway, so the only way that it wouldn’t have launched on the 6 May is if our Controller had run into our office area shouting “For the love of Gawd, pull the service NOW!” Which he wouldn’t have, as he doesn’t speak like that.
So if you’re the one person who has been eagerly awaiting a detailed blog post about it all, well you can now have it. Just not here.
Instead you’ll find it in the form of “corporate blogging” on the BBC Internet Blog, complete with gratuitous mention for my boss John Denton as he insisted (and indeed, he wrote that bit himself thanks to my initial attempts to comply with his wishes for a mention being far too un-subtle and therefore not escaping the savage cuts made by the Internet Blog’s editor, Nick Reynolds!) and an extremely dodgy photograph of me which makes me look like I have a dicky eye.
And lets be honest – those are the only two things you lot really care about when all is said and done!
Anyway, pop over there, read it and indeed comment too!
