Contrary to a Nokia spokesperson saying that a BBC iPlayer app was currently in development and only a few weeks way from being launched. The BBC has today confirmed that no such app is being planned and that it has no plans to develop one in the immediate future.
The BBC has launched iPlayer applications for a number of devices, including iOS, Android, and BlackBerry devices. Even recently worked closely with Microsoft to develop and launch an new iPlayer service for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 gaming console. However the BBC told the Pocket-Lint website that:
“BBC iPlayer is already on over 500 platforms and devices including Virgin Media, BT Vision, FreeSat, Freeview, Sony PlayStation, Nintendo Wii, and hundreds of mobile phones, tablets, and Internet-connected TVs.
We are always looking at new and existing platforms to bring BBC iPlayer to, but have no plans to launch a BBC iPlayer native app in Windows Phone Marketplace in the immediate future.”Filed Under: Technology News
