UK regulator Ofcom has presented a final set of interim directions to the BBC that will curtail its plans to offer extended runs of box-sets on the BBC iPlayer service. The instructions come ahead of the UK public broadcaster carrying out the Public Interest Test that Ofcom imposed in November.

Ofcom has told the BBC to conduct a public interest test (PIT) over plans to expand the BBC iPlayer. The BBC wants to extend the period in which a programme can be viewed, beyond the standard 28-days.

Previously, if a user downloaded the Netflix app through Apple’s App Store and used the built-in billing system found in iPhones and iPads, Apple would take a cut of each month’s subscription bill. Netflix started testing a system that restricts users from using the in-app billing option, requiring them to go directly to the Netflix website to sign up.

After introducing an enormous MicroLED TV called The Wall at last year’s CES, Samsung has returned in 2019 with a smaller, 75-inch 4K TV that’s a far more practical fit for the living room. It uses the same MicroLED foundation as The Wall, combining “individual tiles of self-emissive MicroLEDs, featuring millions of inorganic red, green and blue microscopic LED chips that emit their own bright light to produce brilliant colors on screen.” There’s no backlight required, so MicroLED displays can be incredibly thin.
