BBC iPlayer to launch on Xbox One by the end of 2014

Until now that is, with the Beeb finally revealing that BBC iPlayer will land on Xbox One consoles by the end of 2014. The news came in an FAQ on a BBC blog, with one such question posed asking: "You said Xbox One was coming soon - any update there?" In response iPlayer's executive project manager Marcus Parnwell said: "I am happy to announce that we're aiming to launch new BBC iPlayer on Xbox One by the end of this year." Yes folks you heard right, now you'll be able to catch up on all those Sherlock episodes you missed and all those shameful soaps you pretend not to watch.  In the blog the Beeb also explained which connected TVs, Blu-ray players and devices can expect to receive the updated interface that rolled-out on mobile devices and desktop earlier this year. The app is now heavily image-focused with the aim being to help users discover new programming whilst offering intelligent search capabilities. The BBC also said it was gearing to push the update to YouView, Virgin Media and BT set top boxes later this year. "Whilst I cannot announce dates, we are targeting this year for these platforms. Similarly, other devices on our legacy version of BBC iPlayer will be migrated to the new version this year as well."
