Doctor Wii

Despite concerns from ISPs that the BBC iPlayer is using too much bandwidth which the BBC should be paying for, the video streaming on demand service continues to march, with the Nintendo Wii joining desktop computers and the Apple iPhone in being able to view content.

According to C+VG Nintendo have already gone live with the system, despite advising customers that they would receive an email to confirm the service had gone live.

However while the deal means that all BBC programmes transmitted over the last seven days will be available to the 2.5 million homes with a Wii, similar arrangments with Sony (PlayStation), and Microsoft (XBox 360) appear unlikely.

Erik Huggers, the group controller at the BBC’s future media and technology division said:

“The demographics of the Wii are very exciting for us,” said Mr Huggers. “Nintendo has helped reach a broader range of people with the Wii”.

According to The Times, 17.2 million requests to watch programmes were made during March, an increase of a rather stunning 25% on February.
