BBC iPlayer launch: The first 14 days (and Mac Support)

BBC iPlayer launch: The first 14 days – currybetdotnet – 17 July, 2007

Martin’s tongue-in-cheek take on the first 14 days of the BBC great hope, the iPlayer. Bits on BBC News here, message boards aflame, particularly with regard to mac support. I was at Andy Grumbridge’s leaving drinks the other day when in walked Ashley Highfield, Director of Future Media. Paul, the 4oD editor (and also ex-flextech employee) and I got chatting with Ashley about 4oD and launch of the iPlayer.

Here’s what he had to say, on the record. Mac support, by the end of the year. Happening in one of two ways. option a: Streaming. Like the ITV model and like other BBC clips and news offerings, the content will be streamed (he didn’t say what protocol this would be done with). Option b: Working with Flip4mac to add MS DRM to that product.

Stay tuned… And then there’s always Kangaroo!
