The BBC Trust has announced that it has approved proposals to expand the BBC iPlayer catch-up window to 30 days.
Ofcom has already approved plans to offer content for longer on the service, paving the way for them to be implemented this summer.
"With an average of 10.7 million programme requests every day, BBC iPlayer is highly valued by audiences and has been a phenomenal success since it launched six years ago," said BBC Trust vice chairman Diane Coyle. "It is important that iPlayer continues to evolve and meet the expectations of users.
"We have conducted a thorough assessment of these proposals, including taking independent advice from Ofcom, and concluded that this is a sensible move that will benefit audiences and provide a clearer and more consistent catch-up service."
The new measures will see iPlayer's 'series stacking' option, where multiple episodes of a TV series can be downloaded retrospectively, discontinued, but it will continue to be offered for radio content.
The BBC launched a new version of iPlayer last month, with an overhauled design, smarter reconsiderations and automatic playback optimisation across devices.
