iPlayer to be expanded for games content According to a report by the Scotland on Sunday, the BBC will be making a return to the videogame market by expanding its new iPlayer to offer games content.
Media boss Simon Nelson is expected to reveal the news officially next week at the Edinburgh Interactive Festival. He is expected to speak on the 14th and he will discuss how games will once again become part of the BBC's media portfolio.

Currently, the BBC offers games via its CBBC and CBeebies channels and it also offers a few flash based games on its web channels.

The iPlayer, which was launched in July as an on-demand TV service will be expanded to offer game content following the trend Nelson has started since becoming media boss. He has so far expanded the BBC brand on the internet, DAB digital radio, digital television, and mobile phones.
