BBCi

Redirected from BBC Online

BBCi (formerly BBC Online), reputedly one of the world's largest and most visited web sites, is the web based service of the BBC.

The websites include latest news, an extensive sports section, music, science, technology and entertainment pages, among other things. It also possible to see and hear many of the BBC's television and radio stations there.

As might be expected, the website has a decidedly British orientation, although the news and sport sections each give the reader a choice between UK and international versions.

In February 2001, BBCi incorporated Douglas Adams' previously independent H2G2 project into its group of web sites.

Unusually for a high traffic website, BBC Online has extensive technical information available about its operation.
