BBC iPlayer for Mac – but not for us

Posted: February 9, 2008 in internet, Mac, media

Mark Thompson, the Director General of the BBC has said that the Beeb’s brilliant iPlayer, which allows viewers to watch high-quality Flash video of BBC programmes for free up to seven days after broadcast, will at last be available for Mac users … providing they live in the UK. Until now it’s been Windows only. Writing in the BBC’s Internet blog, Thompson gave no hint of when the iPlayer might be available to the rest of the world but it is surely only a matter of time. There is talk that the Beeb is talking to Apple about putting BBC content on the Apple TV/iTunes platform.
