BBC iPlayer finally available for Windows Phone 8


It has been a long time coming, but today the official BBC iPlayer app is available for Windows Phone 8 users. The “app” is just the iPlayer mobile site wrapped up, but they made some important changes to the site in order for this to be possible.

The BBC made some changes to the site to support streaming on Windows Phone. Previously it was not possible to use the iPlayer even just in the browser. Even though the app is just a wrapper for the mobile site there is a working live tile. Other features are completely dependent on the site. Things like offline viewing are not possible. BBC iPlayer is available now for free in the Windows Phone Store. It is not available for Windows Phone 7.5 due to platform limitations.
