Xbox One will launch without the BBC’s iPlayer app. The on-demand service was notably absent from Microsoft’s list of launch-window apps release last week.

Now, speaking with Digital Spy, a BBC spokesperson said, “BBC iPlayer is already available to audiences on over 1,000 devices and platforms in the UK. While we are working to bring BBC iPlayer to Xbox One in the future, we have no further details to share at this time.”

Microsoft has announced it will reveal more entertainment partners for Xbox One in due course.

Xbox One launches in several territories November 22.

    It’s on ps4 at launch, BBC tends to be more difficult with companies that want to lock their services behind a paywall. Same happened with 360/ps3

    Calm down everyone, so far only one of the big three, Microsoft, has been colleborating with the NSA in the “PRISM”-initiative. Considering that Sony is a Japanese company
    I’m sure Edward Snowden would’ve given us proof by now that Sony is involved. He’s already named some of the biggest American companies.
