The BBC has stated that since Sony’s 3.0 firmware update, PS3 accounts for “10 percent of all iPlayer viewing.”

“User response to our new iPlayer for PS3 has been amazing,” said BBC’s Anthony Rose to CVG. “Although it’s less than a week since we launched, iPlayer on PS3 now accounts for a massive 10 percent of all iPlayer viewing, overtaking Mac (8.5%) to be our 2nd most popular platform for IP-delivered content.

“We’ll have to wait and see whether this holds up in the coming weeks, but this enthusiastic reception makes it clear that users do want iPlayer on their TV – something that bodes well for Canvas and other IPTV propositions.”
