iPhone BBC iPlayer Live

iPhone BBC iPlayer Live. BBCiPlayer is now available on iPhone and iPod touch. To play BBC programmes on your iPhone or iPod touch, you’ll need to be online via a wi-fi broadband connection (the iPhone’s EDGE connectivity is too slow for streaming video). BBCiPlayer on iPhone is a beta version right now, so if you find some programmes aren’t available on iPhone or you get the occasional oddity.

With the BBC’s launch of their iPhone-optimized iPlayer, you can have your H.264 feed and eat it at 512Kbps too! That is, as long as you’re in the UK - lucky Brits. No Flash, no apps, no nothing. Just hit up the iPlayer site on your iPhone’s Safari browser and get your fix of BBC TV shows. Of course, at 512Kbps, you’re going to want to use WiFi - EDGE is just going to take a nice big crap on that kind of throughput requirement.

Yes, It’s still beta, but that’s better than nothing. More information is available from BBC iPlayer website.
