How does live-streaming, on-demand TV sound? We we think it’s swell, too.
Well, with the BBC’s launch of their iPhone-optimized iPlayer, you can have your H.264 feed and eat it at 512Kbps too! That is, as long as you’re in the UK – lucky Brits.
No Flash, no apps, no nothing. Just hit up the iPlayer site on your iPhone’s Safari browser and get your fix of BBC TV shows. Of course, at 512Kbps, you’re going to want to use WiFi – EDGE is just going to take a nice big crap on that kind of throughput requirement.
It’s still beta, but that’s better than nothing.
