iPlayer Downloading

An inter­est­ing nug­get had just appeared in my feed read­er over lunch. A post on the BBC Inter­net blog talk­ing about the future of iPlay­er. Spe­cifally down­load­ing for off­line view­ing.

Using Adobe Integ­rated Runtime (AIR), we intend to make BBC iPlay­er down­load func­tion­al­ity avail­able on Mac, Linux and Win­dows for the first time later this year. Whatever plat­form you use, you’ll now be able to down­load TV pro­grammes from the BBC to watch later – on the train, in the garden, or wherever you like.

Whilst I’m not so happy that it’s using a pro­pri­et­ary runtime like AIR, it’s nice to hear of pro­gress for being able to down­load BBC con­tent onto my Mac.
