GC09; iPlayer coming to UK PS3s; no relation to Apple
No, we are not refering to the next new and exciting product from Apple but the official BBC media player. The iPlayer allows users to stream/download clips, shows, and other features from the BBC. Up until now, the service has only been available on PS3 consoles through the integrated web browser.
Announced at Gamescom, Sony will be partnering with BBC to bring an official version of the streaming service to the PS3…
Now, UK residents will be able to watch their favorite channels including BBC 1 though 4, News, Kids, and plenty of other content, some of which is in high definition.
Unfortunately, this product will never reach North American shores due to license agreements and other lawyer fancy talk. Still, this is another step in the PS3 becoming our one stop entertainment shop (patent pending).
