BBC iPlayer comes to iPhone

Table of Contents


The BBC has launched its first mobile initiative for its growing iPlayer, by launching the service for the iPhone/iPod Touch. The player will only work over wi-fi currently, so if you’re thinking of doing it over Edge – think again.

The BBC team behind the development said they chose the iPhone because it was “optimized” for high quality video playback, but that they would be making the service available to many more mobile platforms very soon.

The BBC has also reached a deal with The Cloud wi-fi firm to provide all BBC online services for free at its 7,500 hotspots according to BBC News.

  1. I am pleased to report that it works very well. I have already enjoyed a couple of programmes via wifi. It looks good on the screen and although the streaming occasionally pauses it is still a great way to catch up on programmes that I missed.
