Channel 4 is to offer a "catch-up" service for viewers by offering much of its programming online for 30 days after transmission for 99p per episode.More from BBC News.
Current series such as Hollyoaks and Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares will be available, alongside archived output from the network's 24 years on air.
The agreement covers all "homegrown" shows commissioned since June.
Each programme will "disappear" from users' computers 48 hours after they start to watch it.
It will be kept in a personalised library until it is first viewed, and then can be accessed an unlimited number of times during that two-day period.
