BBC iPlayer to hit Macs in 2008

The BBC will launch a download version of its iPlayer online video service for Apple Mac users by the end of 2008.

Finally, some progress, although I like how they say 2008 and not a specific time in 2008. I guess we will be seeing this in December then?

On the other hand, I’m interested in how they are going to sort the DRM side of the downloads. As far as I know the Windows players uses Microsoft’s DRM and the videos expire after a week (or along those lines). Does this mean there is a new DRM on it’s way, or are the BBC going DRM free?
