BT Vision Launches BBC iPlayer Service

BT Vision has finally announced the availability of the anticipated BBC iPlayer on its service, allowing fans to enjoy over 400 hours of TV programming from BT.

BT Vision, which was initially launched over five years ago, was already offering its viewers access to BBC programmes via the TV Replay service, but after this latest offering from the company, viewers will be equipped with a brand new iPlayer service.

"The launch of BBC iPlayer on BT Vision adds to the enormous range of quality entertainment already available to our customers," said Marc Watson, BT Retail’s chief executive of television and online services, TechRadar reports.

"We are really excited to be partnering with the BBC to bring BBC iPlayer to our customers," Mr. Watson added.

The TV Replay service, which was the main way that BT Vision customers watched BBC programmes before the launch of this new service, also has shows from ITV Net Player, 4OD and Demand Five.

In addition to carrying 400 hours of quality BBC programmes, the new iPlayer service also allows users to take full advantage of nearly 1000 hours of audio content. This service is also available for no additional cost to UK TV license fee payers.
