Wallace & Gromit on CatchUp

I've not come across this previously, and I suspect it's crafty-design rather than accident:

 

Wallace & Gromit was shown on BBC1 yesterday afternoon 5.25pm. It shows on the reverse-EPG as "watch from CatchUp", but you're then redirected to buy the film on Virgin Movies for £2.50

 

Back out of that and navigate into the iPlayer app, where it's free-to-air for 30days :-)

Does it actually play back from iPlayer? Film showing rights on TV channels are usually "Once only", so are not available on catch-up or +1 services.

Re: Wallace & Gromit on CatchUp

Yep it plays on iPlayer - I'm presuming it's 30days but haven't checked the BBC "program issues" site so it may be less, to be fair.
