Looks like the BBC iPlayer has been postponed indefinitely on Xbox Live due to a stalemate on a service agreement.
See, the BBC wants it to be free, Microsoft charges for services. Never the twain shall meet, apparently.
“Microsoft only wants to offer its users access to platforms it can charge for as this is the model it is pursuing,” explained a BBC source to Telegraph UK. “It wants to ensure that only those paying for Xbox Live Gold accounts can access its additional content services and even then there is usually a charge on top to get access to those. For example, to access the Sky Player on Xbox, you have to pay for a Gold subscription as well as a Sky subscription.
“This does not fit with the BBC’s model and Microsoft will not budge at the moment. It is really frustrating for those involved on the BBC side who want to make sure iPlayer is rolled out on as many popular entertainment platforms as possible.
The BBC cannot charge the British public for access to the iPlayer as it is already included in the licence fee
Currently, PS3 and Wii offer free access to the BBC iPlayer.
