BBC iPlayer On PlayStation 3? Not Yet

Anthony Rose writes on the BBC Internet Blog:

"As you know, our aim is to make BBC iPlayer available on a broad range of devices. We'd love to be on every popular device tomorrow, including the PS3, and it was on our roadmap. However, the reality is that we only have finite developer resources, and we need to divide our development time between expanding the platforms iPlayer is available on versus all the other cool things that we're working on (better video quality, personalisation, new site features, etc)."

"We're investigating the optimal video profile and browser proposition to enable us to officially make iPlayer available on PS3 in due course.

By the way, if the person who created the ps3iplayer port is looking for a job at the BBC, (s)he's welcome to contact me ;-)"

The story is too old to be commented.

And now he has a job at the BBC ;)

Good news its coming to the PS3. It would be great if the BBC can optimize it, even have a proper application which can be access directly from the PS3s XMB (Home Menu), or the PS Store. But a standard browser version would be good enough for most people.

Cant wait to see what they come up with!
