BBC working on PS3-specific version of iPlayer

Tuesday, 28th October 2008 16:24 GMT By Mike


According to, Anthony Rose, head of online media group, BBC Future Media & Technology, has updated his blog to reveal that a PS3 specific version iPlayer is in the works.

“We’re… working on bringing BBC iPlayer to Sony PS3, but we’re not quite there yet as the PS3 uses a slightly older version of Flash which doesn’t support some of the features used in our media player, and the very promising Flash 9 update now available on PS3 has some compatibility issues,” said Rose.

“Our Flash developers are working on it – stay tuned for updates.”

No link to the original blog post was forthcoming.

    Now if only they’d also work on some programmes that are actually worth watching we’d be onto a winner.

    We learnt this ages ago didn’t we? I recall it being mentioned when the Wii version came out.

    I’m not bothered, I just use
    But it’s true there are only a handful of things I watch like Top Gear, Nevermind the Buzzcocks, Mock the Week and Jonathan Ross.
