BBC iPlayer Help

BBC iPlayer closing on some connected TVs and Blu-Ray devices

Due to major infrastructure changes and limited resources, we’ve had to make the tough call to retire the ‘Bigscreen’ version.

This version launched over five years ago and was only being used by 0.1% of BBC iPlayer users. 

The result of this decision meant that from September 2014 some devices that were using this ‘Bigscreen’ version on some TVs, Blu-Ray devices and PCs connected to TVs no longer have access to BBC iPlayer. 

There are lots of other devices that can access BBC iPlayer and for the full list please refer to the BBC iPlayer help pages.
