BBC iPlayer comes to iPhone
The BBC's on demand service, BBC iPlayer, is now available on the iPhone and iPod Touch. The service allows users to watch BBC programmes shown in the last seven days, and provides live streaming.
While iPhone and iPod Touch users will be able to stream content over a Wi-Fi connection, the EDGE mobile network used by the iPhone is not fast enough to cope with streaming. The BBC has teamed up with Wi-Fi provider The Cloud to provide online services to all its 7,500 hotspots for free.
