BBC's iPlayer To Be Crossplatform

rikkus-x Re:Sadly more truth than joke. (232 comments)

Or just drop the DRM, use a codec that's supported cross-platform, install a BitTorrent tracker and stick links to torrents on the website. No 'iPlayer' needed. Job done. Seriously, I'm paying for this. I think that's how it should be done. If 'content providers' don't like the lack of DRM, stop using them. Don't tell me that I won't be able to watch SomeGreatProgramme. Make your own programmes. Shocking idea, I know.
