Wii U users in the UK can now download the BBC iPlayer onto their console.

All you have to do is load up the eShop and download the 94MB file to watch a selection of on-demand programming.

As with the iPlayer Smart TV app, users can watch programming off-screen by using the Wii U GamePad.

Nintendo Life said the app also supports HD playback.
