Take 5 minutes out of your day and fill out this consultation form from the BBC on how they should progress with the delivery of on-demand content services (online and otherwise).
That last question is the big one, on-line content should be available to everyone, not just Microsoft users. Let’s pressure the BBC into embracing open standards.

I’m constantly irritated that I can’t listen to any BBC net radio streams because I refuse to install the flaky, crappy RealPlayer software. Why can’t they deliver all their stations in a non-proprietary format? Why force listeners to install un-necessary software?
Now, the same may happen with future on-demand services. Unless we act now. So please go and take this survey and tell the Beeb you want open standards!
