New developments for BBC iPlayer

While Google wants to bring the web to TV, the BBC has already succeeded in bringing TV to the web via the hugely popular iPlayer.

Today the Corporation announced the launch of a new beta version of the BBC iPlayer, with functionality to allow more personalisation and links with social networking sites including Facebook and Twitter.
BBC Director of Future Media and Technology, Erik Huggers, said: "The launch of this version of the BBC iPlayer is part of our strategy to do fewer things even better and make it more simple, personal and connected. We must no longer try to do everything online, but focus on delivering genuinely world-class products like BBC iPlayer – which audiences love and which really embodies the BBC's core mission in a digital age.
