BBC iPlayer Channel on Wii

Following on from the recent addition of the BBC’s iPlayer to the Playstation 3 platform, the BBC is shortly to release an updated version of the player specifically for Wii users.

The iPlayer is already available on the Wii, but users have complained about it being clunky to use via the Web Browser. Instead it will now gain its own dedicated ‘channel’ on the Wii.

The iPlayer is becoming a more important means of watching BBC TV Content, however with more users keen to use it it is placing pressure on ISPs who are limiting users connections with bandwidth caps or throttling during peak times.

This will only leave the Xbox 360 unable to receive BBC content via the iPlayer, and no sign of this being added any time soon.
