Jack Whitehall's Bad Education Leads the BBC's iPlayer-First Comedy Play

By Sam Gibbs on at

Starting at the end of August, you'll be able to watch Jack Whitehall in Bad Education on the BBC iPlayer a week before it's broadcast on BBC 3. Coupled with web-only shows, and the 40-hours of iPlayer-first shows already scheduled, it shows the BBC's truly throwing itself into online video. I doubt there'll ever be a day when the BBC isn't broadcast free-to-air, but more and more IPTV is definitely in its future. The question remains: Is Bad Education actually worth watching? [BBC]
