Report: BBC iPlayer Launches Next Week On Xbox 360?

Eurogamer reports that the BBC iPlayer app will finally be released on Xbox 360 next week after several months of delays spent arguing about whether the service should be provided to everyone or just Gold Subscribers. However, it appears that Microsoft and the BBC have put aside their differences and decided to make the app available to all regardless of subscription level.

Microsoft has yet to confirm the report, and if true, will likely do so very soon. Watch this space.

Finally, MS caved. Well done BBC!

To be fair, the BBC had no choice but to never agree to make it available to only paying customers. They legally aren't allowed to charge anyone to see the content since it's covered by the TV licence. Same reason they can't advertise on their chanels.

Sweet. Don't use Xbox live so I've avoided paying out for it. Glad I can use iplayer on the xbox without it!
