BBC iPlayer Beta Available for iPhone [Updated]
The service is currently in Beta and for this reason the majority of content is now able to be viewed on the iPhone. The only working content that I could find was the “Whistleblower” documentary.
[Update] The BBC has announced that the iPhone iPlayer Beta officially. Additionally the BBC Blog describes how the iPlayer works on the iPhone:
Back to BBC iPlayer on iPhone implementation: we’re not using the new Apple SDK, nor are we using the much-rumoured Flash for iPhone (no – we haven’t seen it, either). Instead, we’re creating 516Kbps streams (400Kbps H.264 video, 116Kbps AAC audio) that show off BBC programmes brilliantly on an iPhone.
