Advent Calendar: #7 Box of Broadcasts

In the Advent Calendar today we embrace the season by offering you a gift box: Box of Broadcasts (BoB).

The University has an Educational Recording Agency Plus licence which allows us to use Box of Broadcasts (BoB) to record and access television and radio programmes – but with one big caveat: these can only be used within the UK. Both staff and students in the UK can record television and radio programmes which are broadcast within the next seven days. It may also be possible to retrieve programmes that were broadcast in the last seven days, and to browse or search an archive of over 2 million radio and TV broadcasts.

Most terrestrial freeview channels are available and recorded programmes can be watched in a browser, but you can’t download a copy of them.
