The BBC will provide a mix of entertainment and news programming for Yahoo! Platinum. Other new programmes includes 'National Geographic', 'Showtime' and 'Major League Hockey' and soccer.

Yahoo! launched the service in March, charging subscribers $9.95 (£6.26) a month to access the service, which includes video and audio content. Since its launch, the most popular programming has been the ABC news, and performances and interviews from the reality TV shows 'American Idol' and 'Survivor'.

Jim Moloshok, senior vice-president of media, entertainment, information and finance at Yahoo!, said: "We are pleased to announce the expansion of programming from leading content providers, delivering more of the entertainment, sports and news that our Yahoo! Platinum subscribers have shown they want."
