The BBC has announced that a new iPlayer app will be released to UK Xbox One owners by the end of the year.
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.
The new version of iPlayer is “designed for a multi-screen world” and will eventually replace the existing version of the player on other devices.
The Bigscreen version of iPlayer that runs on some TV’s and other devices is to be retired.
