I know the BBC spent quite a bit in iplayer and I must admit I've used it from time to time, not sure if it's taken off as much as they hoped.
They have plans to cut back on some of the web side of things I think, I know staff have been laid off which is a shame. The BBC have come under fire from their old school fans claiming that the online articles are not very good on grammar compared to old BBC standards. Not sure how true this is.
The online version of the BBC recently went under a revamp, I think they spent a lot on it but so far I'm not so keen and preferred the old style, BBC Birmingham still has a really out of date events article, why bother if they don't update it? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-12810551 Just looks really bad.
