BBC iPlayer Freesat beta now available to the public

The BBC initially began a closed group test of the BBC iPlayer for Freesat devices in December 2009.

Over the weekend the BBC announced the trial has gone public. Initially restricted to a small group of users the beta test has now been opened more widely and everyone with a Humax Foxsat-HD or Humax Foxsat-HDR and a broadband connection of at least 1Mbps will be able to participate.

Andrew Bowden, Senior Producer, TV Platforms team at the BBC confirmed that iPlayer will become available to all Freesat HD set top boxes and Freesat HD TVs as soon as possible over the coming months - including all HD boxes and TVs with Freesat built in from launch.

BBC iPlayer is a web-based Television & Radio catch-up service available to TV licence holders in the UK.
