Popular media company BBC Worldwide has joined the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE) consortium in an effort to boost its sales. The company has also enabled UltraViolet for some of its content, meaning if you purchase a BBC DVD, you will also get streaming access online, no matter where you are.

For the time being, UV-enabled shows will be few and far between with just Doctor Who Series 7 Part 1, Rollercoaster, a Top Gear title and Attenborough: 60 Years In The Wild getting the treatment.

To stream the UltraViolet films, you will need to register for Flixster, Time Warner's movie site.

The BBC says: "Details concerning the redemption process will be provided on a leaflet, designed in collaboration with other participating studios, which will be in the DVD case. Post-launch, users will be able to visit a BBC Worldwide site for further information after which they will be automatically transferred to the relevant Flixster location."
