Update for Wii kills BBC iPlayer features An update for the Wii console has caused the BBC iPlayer to stop working on the platform, according to the BBC itself. After the update was released on September 1, forums began to fill with complaints about the iPlayer post-update, which ranged from programmes simply dropping in the middle of viewing, to not working at all.
The system update that has caused the hassle was designed to bring Flash 8 to the Wii's Internet Channel, according to Nintendo. The company was unaware of the BBC iPlayer problems, but the BBC confirmed to Reg Hardware that something definitely went wrong since the update.

"We are currently investigating and hope to resolve the issues with the iPlayer website," the BBC told Reg Hardware. The problem is definitely with the update, since users that haven't applied the update can still use the BBC iPlayer just as before.
