    The BBC's online services will be made available free of charge at thousands of wi-fi hotspots around the UK.
    The corporation has agreed a deal with wi-fi firm The Cloud, which operates 7,500 hotspots around the country.

    The news website, programme sites and downloads of TV shows via the iPlayer can be accessed freely.

    The BBC has also confirmed that users of Apple Mac and Linux machines will be able to use its TV catch-up service from the end of the year.

    The broadcaster has signed a deal with Adobe to provide Flash video for the whole of the BBC's video services, including a streaming version of its iPlayer.

    Currently only Windows XP users can use iPlayer, downloading programmes on to their PC and keeping them for up to 30 days.
