iPlayer coming for iPhone, iPod Touch According to MacNN, the BBC is working on a mobile version of its popular iPlayer software that will make the service available on the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch.
Visitors to the BBC iPlayer website through one of the portable devices will see a "small, inactive link appears in the corner of the main window, indicating that a beta version of the player software will soon be available."

The BBC or Apple have not confirmed the link but with the iPhone SDK event coming soon, there should be more news upcoming.

The BBC is also currently developing an iPlayer for Mac users who currently cannot download any content as it is protected WMV files.
