With the announcement today that the Wii is now compatible with the BBC Iplayer, the console joins the Xbox 360 which has been compatible with the service since the it was launched back in December. With this announcement the PlayStation 3 becomes the only console of the main three not to be compatible with the service. When accessing the flash streams on the PS3's web browser you are greeting by a black window where the video should be.
While little known, the Xbox 360 is actually compatible with the full download version of the Iplayer. As the console is able to understand DRM'd windows media files, it's possible to view the content streamed from a PC containing downloaded videos from the service
