The BBC iPlayer is relaunching on the Nintendo Wii in the form of a dedicated Wii channel on 18 November.

Only consoles with a broadband connection in the UK will be able to run the channel.
To get the service, Wii owners will be able to download it from the console's online shop for free.
The BBC iPlayer has been on the Wii since April 2008 but many console owners reported problems with the original interface.
The iPlayer is also available on Sony's PlayStation 3 console.
The BBC is not the only broadcaster to experience difficulties with bringing its catch-up service to games consoles.
Sky launched the Sky Player on the Xbox 360 in October but Microsoft temporarily suspended the service almost straightaway due to "unprecedented levels of simultaneous demand".
Erik Huggers, direct of Future Media and Technology at the BBC, said that the evolved Wii service was an improvement on the old BBC iPlayer system, describing it as a "faster, high quality and improved viewing experience".
According to research company Chart Track GfK there are almost six million Wii consoles in British homes.
The catch-up radio and television service is also launching in trial, or beta, form on the Freesat TV platform later in November.
British broadcaster Channel 4 has concentrated on making its on-demand service 4OD more accessible on the internet.
In October it announced that it would be showing entire programmes free of charge on YouTube.

That's great news, I'm all for on demand tv, I hate being restricted to viewing my programs when they decide to show it. And not just that but I'm just really useless at remembering to watch things, or being bothered even when it's recorded on series link. So anything that makes your day to day life just that easier is great if you ask me. I was pretty miffed when they updated the flash on the wii browser, only to find that meant I could no longer use iplayer lol.

I think iPlayer depends on your location, so american users would be able to pirate the channel but still not watch it.

The reason is because the BBC is funded through tax. Feel free to come over and and pay tax for owning a TV if you really want to watch it, though.

Might be able to patch it to use a proxy server in the UK.
Proxies don't really work any more for the iPlayer, the BBC got smart. The only thing that still works for me is TOR, and that would be difficult to implement in a Wii channel, methinks.

    Yeah back in my late teens I used to mow about 10 lawns every two weeks for $35 a yard. It was stupid big yards I knew where paying a lot more than that to lawn care companies in a some what up tier gated community a few blocks from the area I lived. Was great getting $700 a month with no bills at the time and good excercise too, now I have bills so I never have any money to buy things.
