The BBC has today launched a new TV-friendly version of its video on demand iPlayer service which aims to improve user experience on this medium. The new version is only available to users in the UK initially on the PlayStation 3 console but later rolled out to a myriad of other devices and connected TVs.
BBC Worldwide, the commercial arm of the BBC, has launched its global iPlayer service this morning, Thursday, with an iPad only app now available in 11 European countries. Other areas such as Australia, Canada and the US are expected to follow later this year.
