What is BoB: Box of Broadcast?

Bob or Box of Broadcast is being launched at the JISC conference in Edinburgh this week. Here is a blurb from the JISC press release.

the British Universities Film and Video Council (BUFVC) will be launching
BoB – Box of Broadcast. Similar to the BBC’s iPlayer, it will make broadcast
and video content available indefinitely to thousands of students and
researchers for the first time.

It allows users to record forthcoming programmes or missed programmes in the last week. However, unlike iPlayer, these programmes do not expire and areavailable indefinitely, making it invaluable for lecturers and students requiring constant access (link).
