Wii iPlayer

It can appear on the iPhone and iPod Touch but Auntie Beebs iPlayer will soon be popping up on your HD teles via the Nintendo Wii as well.

In its current Beta form for the Wii, the iPlayer service will cost £3.50 (or 500 Wii points) to install the Internet Channel needed to view it and is then free and easy to access.

A BBC spokesperson added that the service would be tweaked over coming weeks to improve service and image quality and in an effort to eliminate the need to purchase the Internet Channel.

Now we hust have to wait for interactive channels so you can use the Wiimote – praps as a gavel in ‘Cash in the Attic’ or ‘Homes Under the Hammer’……?
