TV manufacturer Samsung has announced that the BBCs catch-up service iPlayer will be built into a range of its integrated TV sets.
The iPlayer will be one of up to 100 apps the manufacturer aims to deliver via its InternetÂ @TVÂ platform. This follows yesterdayÂs announcement that a trial of the BBCÂs catch-up service on the UKÂs free-to-air DTH service Freesat had been extended to all users with Humax set-top boxes. Erik Huggers, BBC director future media and technology, told The Telegraph newspaper: ÂBBC iPlayer has enjoyed huge success since launch two years ago, and the next challenge for us is taking the service mobile and into the living room; we’ve built a version of BBC iPlayer that can be easily adapted to work on internet-connected TVs.Â
Other apps to be launched by Samsung over the coming months will include the Muzu.tv music library and LoveFilm’s online DVD rental service.
