    BBC iPlayer heads to Xbox Live next week

    The BBC iPlayer launches on Xbox Live next week, Eurogamer understands.


    The BBC iPlayer catch-up service app will be available to download from Xbox Live after both companies sorted out the thorny issue of charging for the service.


    Apps announced by Microsoft as part of its late 2011 Xbox 360 revamp included a mention of the BBC iPlayer, but Microsoft's premium Xbox Live Gold subscription service proved a stumbling block.

    Glad to finally be getting this, and it's good that people with silver membership are able to use the app without a fee.

    I love all these new apps on the xbox. I have mostly used the youtube one, but it's awesome for a console app, and it plays HD feeds!! I have literally stopped using the HTPC for youtube.

    You might need a UK proxy to do that.

    If that turns out to be the case on the 360, I'll stick with the online streaming sites.

    Shame on Eurogamer not putting there original source tbh.
    As I seen this information at least a week or so go from somebody who contacted somebody at Microsoft at another forum.

    Lets see If this information turns out to be correct.
