Over a year on from the launch of the PlayStation 5, the BBC has finally launched the BBC iPlayer app on Sony's new console.
The PS5 launched with other streaming services like Apple TV, Disney+, Netflix, Spotify, Twitch, and YouTube, and has the likes of NOW TV and Prime Video, too. But for us Brits, the absence of BBC iPlayer has been a tad annoying, especially for anyone that uses their PlayStation console as their one stop shop for streaming services.
Now, BBC iPlayer is available to download from the PlayStation Store on PS5, and sits with the other streaming services in the console's media tab.
“We’re always working to make iPlayer available across as many platforms as we can, and we’re delighted to add the PS5 to the 15,000+ devices where BBC iPlayer is already available,” said iPlayer boss Neil Hall.
“From today, PS5 owners can add the BBC iPlayer app by going to the Media tab on the PS5 home screen and selecting BBC iPlayer from the All Apps section. This will add BBC iPlayer to the apps library and make it available to use direct from the PlayStation home screen.”
It's good to have iPlayer back where it belongs on PlayStation. Now, if you'll excuse us, we're gonna be watching a load of David Attenborough documentaries in glorious 4K through the PS5.
