BBC offers iPlayer to more users


by David Allen

Since the iPlayer from the BBC went mobile, it has been confined to the owners of the iPhone, iPod Touch and Nokia N96, but having seen the demand for content on the move, the BBC are now going to offer the iPlayer to other portable devices.

Following an announcement from the head of on demand services, Anthony Rose, the iPlayer will now be available to users of any mobile device that supports Windows Media protected content.

This will include the latest Sony Walkman E and S series, the Archos 605 Internet media tablet, the Philips Go Gear 52xx series, and Samsung’s YP-P2 and YP-Q1.

However, the experience may be slightly different for the users of these devices as they cannot connect directly to the internet, therefore streaming is out of the question and programmes will need to be downloaded first.
