The BBC's iPlayer service will soon show live streaming from the terrestrial channels BBC1 and BBC2.
Up until now, the popular iPlayer has been a catch-up service, allowing viewers to watch programmes they may have missed via a broadband connection.
Recently BBC Three, BBC Four, CBBC, CBeebies and BBC News had been broadcast live through the iPlayer and now the corporation's two flagship channels will join them.
Responding to the news, ISPReview comments: "The move means that popular shows, such as EastEnders, Heroes and Never Mind The Buzzcocks, will be available online.
"Mind you, sticking two of the broadcaster's most popular channels online could cause a further rise in broadband traffic consumption for ISPs."
The simulcast will begin on November 27th and will be available to be viewed by licence fee-paying broadband users in the UK.
