The BBC supports a wide range of platforms when it comes to the iPlayer. Offering a way for folk to remain up-to-date with their favorite programs is what makes iPlayer a must-have for many, and luckily for Apple TV owners the BBC plans to finally launch iPlayer on the new set-top box within the next few months.
BBC iPlayer will be coming to the new Apple TV in the coming months...— BBC iPlayer (@BBCiPlayer) October 29, 2015
With the new Apple TV being available for pre-order, the BBC took a moment to announce said upcoming support, which will complement what's already available for both the iPhone and iPad. Unfortunately, not much else was revealed by the BBC so we'll have to wait and see.
