Watch BBC Programming With Your Wii Using The BBC iPlayer
It seems Nintendo is attempting to make a move into your home theater, with a beta release of "iPlayer in your living room" today, enabling you to download the BBC's iPlayer onto your Nintendo Wii, allowing you to watch your choice of programming on your TV. The first step is to install the Internet Channel on your Wii, costing you 500 Wii points or 3.50 Pounds. Hopefully in the future, using the iPlayer on the Wii will be entirely free. Next to head over to BBC's iPlayer page, find your program and just hit play. It should playback immediately.
Nintendo seems intent on moving the Wii from a video game system to a full-on media center, developing an interactive TV guideearlier this year and allowing compatibility with the Moowee.tv interface last fall. We're excited to see what Nintendo has up their sleeve next.
