The BBC iPlayer is now compatible with the PlayStation 3 Internet Browser so you can enjoy all your favourite BBC shows on your HDTV. The BBC iPlayer service provides a video-on-demand service allowing you watch programs up to seven days after they broadcast on live TV. You can access the iPlayer by visiting the iPlayer Website on your PS3. Of course, you must live within the United Kingdom in order to use the BBC iPlayer. The PS3 compatible iPlayer was announced back in October this year, and has been available on the Wii for some time now.
With the new features in Firmware Update v2.53, you will also be able to enjoy the iPlayer videos in full screen. If you already own the PlayTV device in the UK, this service is a bonus to the BBC channels you already receive.
