On Demand - How long does it take for programs to be on catchup?

For example - if i wanted to watch Britain's Got Talent which finishes live at 10pm, on ITV Net Player, what time (roughly) will it be available?

Cheers

Oops, i'm such a noob. It's on there now.

In my defence, i wanted to watch Biggest Loser the other day and i had to wait about 3 hours so i wondered if there was a set time for everything.

Re: On Demand - How long does it take for programs to be on catchup?

Well i'm still waiting and it's still not there. The last thing on there is Corrie @ 8pm so i'm not convinced it'll be on before i have to go to bed.

Hate myself for not taping it.

Hate Virgin more for not having it on VOD pronto!!!

It's not up to Virgin, Pia. ITV are responsible for loading the ITV Player.

But Virgin are responsible when the whole system goes down!

Re: On Demand - How long does it take for programs to be on catchup?

Live shows are usually on by the next morning but other shows are there already from midnight the previous day but when you come to watch them the following day they are hidden so you can't watch them before they have aired so in theory if you wanted you could watch all the itv shows that hadn't even aired that you were going to watch the following day at midnight!
