Today the BBC has launched a new iPlayer that they have created specifically for TV’s providing users with more control and a TV-friendly design that is as simple as changing channels when watching TV.
Its the first time the BBC has created such an iPlayer application designed specifically for TV’s devices and has vastly improved the search feature to help you find programmes with little effort, and provide quick access.
New features have also been added to the new TV version, enabling you to personalise your iPlayer installation by remembering favourite channels and improved recommendations for programmes you might enjoy.
The BBC explains:
“Last week, Ofcom reported that 10% of TV sets sold in the UK are internet ready. But BBC iPlayer is already available on over 300 connected TVs and blu-ray disc players, which has resulted in a five fold growth of iPlayer on TV over the last six months alone. At this rate of growth, in the next few years we could well see over half of iPlayer use directly on the living room TV.”
