BBC iPlayer hits Wii

Wii users will be able to stream a plethora of BBC programmes from midnight tonight, when a message will be sent to all UK-based Wii consoles currently connected to the internet informing users of the new service.

Existing Wii owners will then be able to watch BBC iPlayer content through the console’s Internet Channel.

“This exciting alliance with the BBC is yet another way in which Nintendo is looking to broaden the market for its products by offering compelling and relevant content to families,” said general manager of Nintendo UK David Yarnton.

“BBC iPlayer on Wii will offer Wii owners another reason to turn their console on everyday and adds to the already established non gaming content on Wii that includes news and weather channels and an internet browser.”
