The BBC iPlayer is the first of it’s kind on any portable player and comes piggybacking on the just released SDK for the iPhone. What’s more, the iPhone’s little brother, the iPod touch also will get the BBC’s iPlayer as it shares the iPhone’s OS. The iPlayer will work over wifi, with the news feed coming straight from BBC’s website and No, the cell phone networks cannot transmit these newscast’s over their networks just as yet though BBC doesn’t rule it out in the future.
