10 Yetis Marvels at "Digital Cross Platform" Launch of BBC3

How exciting... BBC3 has announced that it is going to relaunch in a social networking/ "Digital Cross Platform" or "Cross Digital Platform" or maybe it was "Platform of the Digital Cross" format. Anywho, regardless of its name... what does this mean? That there is going to be simultaneous broadcasting online and on the telebox.

Get ready for the telebox pictures to be decided by what goes on in the online section and no doubt iPlayer will feature heavily.

New Multi Platform Channel

I am wondering how it will, or if it will, interact with social networking sites? Also, will it be Mac compatible? At the present time iPlayer does not work on shiny Macs which makes no sense whatsover ever as a large majority of media industry bods only use Macs.

We will have to wait and see what happens.
