The BBC plans to increase the seven-day viewing period for iPlayer to 30 days as standard, according to Dan Taylor, head of iPlayer.
It also plans to introduce new channels and a Radio 1 video version and is looking to test auto play.
Taylor, who was speaking in a keynote entitled The Future of Connected Entertainment and subsequently in a panel discussion at TV Connect, said that the new version of iPlayer, which went live only a week ago following a huge amount of user testing, has already had positive feedback, with viewers saying they were discovering programmes they would not have previously planned to see.
The new version of iPlayer had been created with multiscreen in mind, with its main focus being to make it easier to use for viewers.
