Read this: BBC Worldwide shuts BBC Store

Summary: BBC Worldwide is to close BBC Store just 18 months after it launched the download-to-own service - blaming a rapidly changing market for the decision. The service, which sells some 12000 hours of BBC Studios and indie shows including Doctor Who and Line of Duty, will stop accepting purchases from today, ahead of a full closure of the site in November. iPlayer links to the service will be removed over the next few days. Customers who have bought shows via Store will be fully refunded or offered Amazon Prime vouchers to re-download their programmes. The cost to BBCW is thought to run in to the low millions of pounds. A handful of dedicated staff have been placed into redundancy consultations as a result of the closure, with the BBC attempting to find them roles elsewhere in the organisation.. - link
