New version of iPlayer from BBC features program Collections

The BBC is rolling out a new version of its iPlayer today, available for use online, with consoles and connected TVs for UK citizens. The changes to iPlayer have been made in an attempt to move away from being a static service, and aims to offer a more interactive experience. When an episode of a series finishes playing, iPlayer now automatically lines up the next episode in sequence, while suggesting other content that may be relevant to the viewer.

Newly featuring a Collections section, programming is grouped by series, event or theme. The app's 'Find a Programme' search box recalls recent searches, with predictive typing, and an A-Z search function. The new BBC iPlayer will become available throughout the day, and native apps for iOS, Android, Mac and Windows are due to arrive soon.
