Box of Broadcasts (BoB)

BoB (Box of Broadcasts) is a shared online off-air TV and radio recording service for UK higher and further education institutions.

BoB enables all staff and students to choose and record any broadcast programme from 60+ TV and radio channels. The recorded programmes are then kept indefinitely (no expiry) and added to a growing media archive (currently at over 1 million programmes), with all content shared by users across all subscribing institutions. 

The user-friendly system allows staff and students to record and catch-up on missed programmes on and off-campus, schedule recordings in advance, edit programmes into clips, create playlists, embed clips into MyAberdeen, share what they are watching with others, search a growing archive of material, plus more.
