The BBC's On-Demand TV Service

The BBC's On-Demand TV Service,

Went Live Today For Selected S60 Devices just like we expected, BBC's on-demand TV service also known as BBC iPlayer which lets you download a wide range of BBC television programmes transmitted in the past seven days is finally available for the selected Nokia S60 phones.

From today, you'll be able to run the BBC's iPlayer on your mobile phone and to catch-up, stream and download your favourite BBC programmes on demand for up to seven days after broadcast.

The S60 version of the BBC iPlayer allows UK audiences to download and stream BBC TV programming but only over the Wi-Fi connection for now although it was promised that player will be 3G and the Wi-Fi compatible!

Anyway, S60 version of the iPlayer is released as the Web Runtime (WRT) Unfortunately and soon or later they will release it as native Symbian application which will be available for wall 2nd and 3rd edition S60 phones, not only for very few devices that support Web Runtime (WRT)at the moment.

So far it’s confirmed as compatible with the FP2 phones like Nokia N78 and Nokia N96 of course, but it also works on the WRT extended FP1 phones like the Nokia N95!
