BBC embraces the Wii

The BBC’s iPlayer VoD service will soon be available as a Wii Channel. An early version of the service is expected to go live today and will only be available in the UK to licence-fee payers (initially through the Wii Internet Channel).

I was excited to see this news, but definitely disappointed that it is limited to the UK. Hopefully the BBC will realize that this service could be quite popular everywhere and work with Nintendo to roll it out across the globe.
