BBC iPlayer will be added to Anytime+ later in the year also ITV Player Catchup will be added.

There is no new news other than it should be arriving within the next month or so (hopefully).

No, Sky are currently testing it so nobody has the iplayer yet.

it's quite normal to promote things before they launch, otherwise how would people know they're coming!

 

anyway iPlayer is up and running now and it's great, though finding the HD content is a trifle convoluted

And it's not just the HD content that can be difficult to find.

Re: Sky Anytime + and BBC Iplayer

I'm looking at the "On Demand" menu now - there is no "Catch Up" tab - from left to right I have:

All, Sky Store, Movies, Entertainment, Documentaries, Kids, Sports, News, Music.

My Box is brand new and cabled to port 1 on my router five feet away.
