BBC iPlayer Coming to the PS3

15 April 2008 No Comment

Playstation 3.iplayer.jpg As we all know last week the BBC deployed its popular iPlayer on the Nintendo Wii, which left many a Sony fanboy (and Xbox fanboys too) up in arms. Where was the PS3 version. Well despite reports that the reason the iPlayer was on the Wii only was because Sony and Microsoft wanted the BBC to surrender too much control of their revolutionary on demand gizmo the word is that it could be coming to the PS3 after all, but only after the enterprising few among the PS3 world got so upset they decided to make on of their own. Anthony Rose the BBC Head of Digital Media Technology, Future Media & Technology had this to say about the hack:

While I’m impressed that someone has done this, this doesn’t mean that it’s the best possible iPlayer proposition for that console. We’re investigating the optimal video profile and browser proposition to enable us to officially make iPlayer available on PS3 in due course.

So don’t panic, and watch this space.
