iPlayer suspected to launch on Xbox Live next week



/ 7 years ago

The BBC iPlayer launches on Xbox Live next week, according to a report.

The BBC iPlayer catch-up service app will be available to download from Xbox Live after both companies sorted out the thorny issue of charging for the service.

Apps announced by Microsoft as part of its late 2011 Xbox 360 revamp included a mention of the BBC iPlayer, but Microsoft’s premium Xbox Live Gold subscription service proved a stumbling block.

Now, though, everyone’s happy, and the license-fee funded iPlayer will be offered for free to Silver and Gold subscribers.

Xbox currently has 4oD and Channel 5 on Demand apps. The ITV Player launches before the end of the year.

Microsoft told Eurogamer it “does not comment on rumour and speculation”.
