BBC iPlayer coming to Xbox One 'by the end of this year'

One of the big apps Brits like to have everywhere is BBC iPlayer, and soon enough it will finally be available on the Xbox One. In a post on the BBCs official blog Executive Product Manager, Marcus Parnwell, has made the vaguest of statements on availability but did confirm plans for a 2014 release:

Q. You said Xbox One was coming soon – any update there?A. Yes. I am happy to announce that we're aiming to launch new BBC iPlayer on Xbox One by the end of this year.

So there we have it. It's just one of a number of changes the BBC is making to iPlayer across connected devices, but for those Xbox One owners waiting oh so (im)patiently, hold on just a little longer.
