The BBC has announced that it will be introducing its innovative iPlayer service to the Wii, allowing UK gamers to access a wide range of TV shows on demand.

The iPlayer service has been running on the Internet for a while now and has been a tremendous success, proving that the BBC is more than able to move with the times.

The veteran broadcasting corporation had this to say:

The BBC's iPlayer video service will soon be available via the Nintendo Wii.

The video download and streaming service that lets people catch up with BBC programmes will soon be a channel on the hugely popular game console.

Early versions of the service will be available from 9 April but more polished software will be released as the service is developed.

Basically this turns the Wii into an on-demand free view box, which is surely excellent news for everyone concerned. Due to TV licensing laws, the service is currently only available to viewers within the UK.
