BBC Finally Launches iPlayer IPTV Service

Posted: 27th Jun, 2007 By: MarkJ
The BBC has finally announced a launch date of July 27th for its much publicised on-demand Internet TV (IPTV) service - iPlayer:

UK users will be able to download popular shows over the net seven days after broadcast to watch on their PC.

Later this year, the service will also be available via links from YouTube and could also appear on other websites such as MSN, Bebo, and Facebook.

Over time other features will be added to the iPlayer including live streaming of programmes, the BBC Radio Player and "series stacking", which will allow users to download episodes from series retrospectively.

Sadly you'll only be able to use the application if you own a Microsoft Windows based PC, although a MAC version is already being touted for autumn this year.

To date we haven’t been hugely impressed by the BBC’s existing implementation and hope that the final product improves video quality for those able to handle it (faster speeds). It will be interesting to see whether or not the service has a negative impact upon ISP bandwidth. More @ BBC News Online.
