Today, March 20th 2012, Xbox LIVE finally received the BBC iPlayer application.
The App will be free, so if you don’t have a Gold Membership to Xbox LIVE – don’t worry! It features a Kinect-enabled interface similar to that of other services on the platform, like Netflix and Vuze.
The iPlayer App is now on all 3 major consoles – the PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii and finally the Xbox 360, the delay being down to the fact of the subscription service of Xbox LIVE, but it was eventually decided to be free due to the BBC’s services not being able to be used with a paywall.
It is now questioned whether or not Microsoft will allow the other entertainment services such as 4oD and Demand 5 to be accessible without a paid membership on Xbox LIVE.
