There's a new feature available on iPlayer apps (smart tV, Fire TV app) which provides live what's-on-now for all channels.

Probably related to the changes in TV licencing which the Tory govt. is forcing on the BBC. -previously, catch-up was licence free. Addition of live channels changes the parameters of on-line access

I note that BBC is introducing Video Factory which seems a similar process to that involved with the audio factory earlier this year.
