PS3 Has 10% Of BBC iPlayer Viewers

The BBC has revealed that since their iPlayer was integrated into the PS3 with Firmware 3.0, Sony's console now accounts for 10% of total viewership using the on demand TV viewer. The BBC’s Anthony Rose commented:
“User response to our new iPlayer for PS3 has been amazing. Although it’s less than a week since we launched, iPlayer on PS3 now accounts for a massive 10 percent of all iPlayer viewing, overtaking Mac (8.5%) to be our 2nd most popular platform for IP-delivered content."

“We’ll have to wait and see whether this holds up in the coming weeks, but this enthusiastic reception makes it clear that users do want iPlayer on their TV – something that bodes well for Canvas and other IPTV propositions.”
