As far as we know, hell is not actually freezing over, but the BBC iPlayer IS headed to compatible Sky HD boxes. Users with a compatible set-top box, and broadband connection will be able to access hundreds of hours of BBC programmes on demand, as BBC iPlayer rolls out on Sky+.
Sky customers will be able to enjoy programmes from the full range of BBC TV channels. They can choose to browse by day or from a range of categories, including genres such as comedy, drama, food or history. Other options available include flicking through a selection of most popular on demand BBC shows from the last seven days.
Programmes will be downloaded directly their Sky+ planner and ready to watch when the customer feels up to it.
BBC iPlayer joins catch-up TV services from Sky, ITV and Five, all located within a dedicated Catch Up section within the On Demand section of Sky. Sky customers will very soon be able to enjoy the full line-up of free-to-air terrestrial catch-up TV services, delivered straight into their living room.
Here are some pics, so you know its real..
