BBC 'working to bring' iPlayer to Xbox One in the future

The BBC has discussed the status of iPlayer on Xbox One.

While the corporation couldn't confirm the app at this stage, it insisted that it is "working to bring" the catch-up service to the next-gen console "in the future".

"BBC iPlayer is already available to audiences on over 1,000 devices and platforms in the UK," a spokesperson told Digital Spy.

"While we are working to bring BBC iPlayer to Xbox One in the future, we have no further details to share at this time." (Xbox One)

I'd expect that MS will bring all of the apps on the Xbox 360 to Xbox One. What I'm hoping for is that MS will allow them to be region free. I'd love to be able to use BBC iPlayer here in the US.

I'd say MS would love to make them region free, but there'd be too many legal complications when trying to share content. I'm in Ireland and would love some of the apps available in other countires
