VIDEO ON DEMAND shows are pre-recorded and ready to be played whenever it suits you. Some of the video on demand shows on the programme do have limited viewing windows however, meaning they maybe up for 3 or more days and then gone again. There are video on demand shows on both the Fringe and Curated programme.
With Weekend Online you can definitely #STAYHOME and #STAYCONNECTED – enjoy!
