The BBC iPlayer’s just got even better. In an update rolled out on the 17th of February 2011, content from non-BBC providers has been added to search results.
From the Search box or from the TV Channels section, you can now find programmes from other video-on-demand providers. This includes broadcasters ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5, as well as content from SeeSaw. If you select a link from a non-BBC provider, you’re taken to their site (i.e. the video doesn’t play through the BBC iPlayer)
Other video-on-demand operators are able to apply for inclusion on the BBC iPlayer feed.
