Games Consoles

Nintendo Wii

In April 2008, BBC iPlayer became available on the Nintendo Wii games console, via the Wii's Opera browser. From November 2009, the BBC iPlayer got its own channel on the Nintendo Wii.

Sony Playstation 3

The sony PS3 has been around for a long time now and is due to be replaced by a new 'PS4'. As well as being a very good games console, it is also a great device for playback of media and streamed content in the home. It is also one of the few consoles with a Blu-Ray player.

At the end of 2008, BBC iPlayer became available on Sony's PS3 console. In September 2009, a link was added to the PS3's XMB menu, linking straight to the iPlayer site. The PS3 accounts for a sizable amount of iPlayer usage now, mainly because it uses a 1500Kbps stream for a high quality picture
