BBC iPlayer unofficial page for PS3

A rather nice unofficial page that lets UK PS3 users use, access and watch TV programmes on their PS3 using the BBC iPlayer.

A statement on the site says:

"It's mainly a demonstration of how easily the BBC could support the PS3 with their Wii version. This does nothing more than mask your PS3's user-agent string and makes half a dozen changes to make the JavaScript and CSS function correctly on the PS3. It only took a day to produce, so come on BBC - how about implementing this properly?"

I just accessed the page on my PS3 to see if this works. Within a few seconds of accessing the page I was watching last weeks Dr Who episode (S04E01 Partners in Crime).

BBC support would enable full screen viewing rather than limited box viewing but this, without a doubt, is proof of concept.

Nice find

BBC and 4OD should sort this out!!

Nice idea. We can now access iplayer on the PS3... and this should help the BBC implement this feature sooner than later officially.
