BBC Three is to premiere comedy series The Mighty Boosh on the internet before it is broadcast on television.
The Mighty Boosh was nominated for a comedy award
The second series of the show will premiere via broadband from 19 July - a week before it is shown on television.
It will be the first in a number of BBC Three comedies that will be shown first via the internet.
Jana Bennett, director of television at the BBC, said it was a "significant step" in offering audiences greater value in a changing television world.
She added: "It is one of a number of pilots that BBC Television will be undertaking over the next few months, exploiting the opportunities that new technologies offer to look at how programmes might be delivered beyond the traditional linear broadcast."
The second series of The Mighty Boosh sees the return of intrepid heroes Vince Noir (Noel Fielding) and Howard Moon (Julian Barratt).
The first series, which was shown last year, was nominated for best comedy newcomer at the 2004 British Comedy Awards.
All episodes will be available to view for up to seven days after the final programme of the series transmits on BBC Three.
Stuart Murphy, controller of BBC Three, said: "It's a natural progression for us to make our programmes available on broadband.
"More and more homes are getting connected as there are now over six million broadband subscribers in the UK.
"Crucially, it can deliver a television experience whenever people want it."
