Wii adds BBC iPlayer channel The BBC iPlayer is set to have its own Nintendo Wii channel very soon, says Erik Huggers, BBC director of Future Media & Technology.
The popular TV service was available through the Wii's Internet browser but the new dedicated channel will offer full-screen support and an easier to use interface.

The channel goes live November 18th.

"Were pleased that weve been able to work with Nintendo to evolve BBC iPlayer on the Wii, providing a faster, high quality and improved viewing experience,"
says Huggers.

"Its important that we offer audiences more ways to access the huge range of BBC content available, and this improved version of BBC iPlayer underlines our commitment to reaching new audiences by making BBC iPlayer available on as many platforms as possible."

I have the iPlayer on my PS3 and it's absolutely amazing. Fair enough all I can watch is the BBC related stuff but the quality is pretty much DVD standard. Oh and TvShack on my web browser :D

We'll see how this goes. I love the work the BBC does in comparison to some of the media establishments over here in the states.
