BBC strikes video sharing deal with newspapers

The BBC has signed a deal with a number of newspapers to share its video content on their websites.

The Daily Telegraph, Guardian, Independent and Daily Mail will be able to feature certain BBC video news content on their websites for free. Video news covering UK politics, business, health and science/technology will be made available in a branded video player. The BBC said it has no intention of extending the range of content to genres such as entertainment news and sport news.

The BBC’s decision to share its video content forms part of its plans to open up access to BBC news content as part of the Digital Britain process.
