BBC issues iPlayer guidelines

October 23, 2009

New guidelines issued by the BBC with regards to the iPlayer could mean the on-demand catch-up service being rolled out to more devices in the future.

The guidelines talk about bespoke development, which implies the iPlayer technology being made available to the manufacturers of hand held devices such as phones and games consoles.

In December the iPlayer will be two years old.

When it was first launched there were many criticisms from ISPs over the fact that it was only for Windows users.

Now the iPlayer can be found on over twenty different platforms and that is set to rise even further following these new guidelines.

The BBC wants to push the iPlayer as far as it will go.

Currently it delivers around a hundred million streams every month with ten per cent being through the PS3!
