Supreme Court launches 'video on demand' service

Supreme Court logo

Live streaming of cases heard in the Supreme Court has been available to view since October last year, the 'video on demand' initiative aims to complement this service.

As a news release issued yesterday explains:
Footage of the proceedings in court will be freely available via each case's page on the Supreme Court website, and will be uploaded the next working day. Once judgment is delivered, footage of the Justices' summary in court will also be published alongside the full judgment text and press summary. 
Footage will remain available for approximately one year after the court hearing, before being removed to make way for new cases. For copyright reasons, users will not be able to download the footage for long term storage or editing.
Links to both Current and Decided cases are available via the Supreme Court web site.
