Telly addicts have the chance to watch old episodes of their favourite shows through the new Seesaw broadband TV service.

The website is an online streaming platform, which has compiled over 3,000 hours of content from the likes of BBC, Channel 4 and Five, including hit shows such as Hustle, The Apprentice, Shameless and classic episodes of Doctor Who.

It is currently being offered for free and is funded by adverts shown before and during each programme, although a pay model may come into force when more high-profile content is added.

John Keeling, the Controller of Seesaw, said: "'This is the tip of the iceberg.

"It feels to me like it did 20 years ago when I was at Sky and multichannel TV was just beginning and you saw satellite dishes sprouting on people's homes like mushrooms."

A recent report by Morgan Stanley suggested that the creation of the internet-connected TV platform Project Canvas could boost demand for broadband services in the UK.
