The BBC has announced that the latest edition of the iPlayer will be made available for the Playstation 3.
No official timeline has been given as to when the BBC’s catch up service will be updated, but according to a BBC spokesperson the rollout of the new version will be taking place before the end of the year.
The latest version of the iPlayer has been updated with new features, such as the application called “For You”.
This is a section that directs the user to programming they may be interested in, based to the user’s viewing history.
The third generation iPlayer will be getting social networking integration, although it is not entirely clear as to whether this function will be enabled on the PS3 edition.
