Now, this actually is ironic. The BBC’s announced on its blog that its iPlayer is on the way to PS3. The Corporation’s just working out how best to do it.

“We’re investigating the optimal video profile and browser proposition to enable us to officially make iPlayer available on PS3 in due course,” said Anthony Rose, head of digital media technology, future media & technology at the BBC. By the way, if the person who created the ps3iplayer port is looking for a job at the BBC, (s)he’s welcome to contact me.”

The BBC announced last week that it had struck a deal with Nintendo to launch iPlayer – its system for playing BBC programming via t’interweb – on Wii.
