GAME Says BBC iPlayer Is Coming To Wii U

A Wii U advertisement that was spotted in UK retail outlet GAME states that the BBC’s iPlayer service is coming to Wii U. To be honest it was expected as it’s widely available on a variety of entertainment devices, including the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. Still, it’s nice to know that it will be available on Wii U presumably at launch.

    1. Yeah Exactly. Any little thing Nintendo can get for their Consoles will make it even better even if it is going wicked atm

    2. HUGE NEWS!!!! waiiiit a miiiinute :/ , I have BBC iplayer on my wii already :D , ofcourse the wiiu will have it :) .

      BBCIPLAYER FTW .

  1. I highly doubt the BBC will have something ready at launch…Although if the browser is available immediately and has flash it might be supported directly through the website anyway

    1. you dont read much news do you. the browser is launch day ready no flash support but it does support html5

          1. This is true.
            Adobe charges a licensing fee to use flash.
            HTML5 is free.
            That’s why web devs are moving to it.

    2. You do know BBC iplayer has been available on the Wii for 3 years now ?? This is barey news.

  2. great news :)
    Its good to know Nintendo Hasn’t forgotten about us here in the UK.
    I wonder if this will integrated with TVii or be a separate app.

  3. BBC’s version of Nintendo TVii. At least that’s good news for the Europeans who want to watch their favorite shows and streaming movies.

      1. Do you not have iplayers where you come from? Basically an BBC channel (and theres about 8 i think), you can watch previous shows or from the past month on the iplayer

  4. I knew this would proabley be on Wii U as it was on the Wii as well as the 360 and PS3.
    I wonder if it would be possible for Nintendo and the BBC to put BBC iPlayer on the 3DS as I know in the US the 3DS has Netflix.

  5. Why it might happen: BBC had an app on the Wii
    Why it might not happen: GAME is the only source. And they aren’t trustworthy.

  6. great news cause BBC iplayer on wii is must better than PS3. For the yanks FYI, BBC iplayer is an apps for British channels which regroup BBC TVs and Radio. It’s like TV on demand for the Brits.
