BBC to re-engineer iPlayer for Mac support

iPlayer coming to Macs

The BBC today announced that it will re-engineer its iPlayer service to work with Mac systems, and said the service will eventually come to digital terrestrial TV (DTT) as well as set-top boxes. The BBC's Future Media chief Ashley Highfield made the announcement at an industry conference in Cannes, according to that firm. "Our audience increasingly want and expect to dictate how, when and where they get our services," Highfield told the conference. The director of Future Media and Technology also said the BBC is starting to deliver content in a "hybrid environment" where digital TV, radio, the Web, and set-top boxes as well as personal video recorders are combining to offer interactive services.
