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.
