Viewers will be able to watch more shows on the BBC iPlayer, including live highlights of Edinburgh’s festivals, before they are broadcast on TV under changes planned by the new director-general.

Tony Hall set out his vision for the BBC’s future as he gave his first major address since taking over at the Corporation in April. A new service, BBC Store, will allow people in the UK to buy, watch and keep a selection of BBC shows.

Mr Hall also announced an emphasis on live performances of events such as the Commonwealth Games, Edinburgh Festival and Glastonbury, on TV, computer, mobile and 
tablet.
