BBC today released their BBC iPlayer on the Xbox One console. BBC worked closely with Microsoft to bring this new version of iPlayer to Xbox One. This is a standard HTML 5 based application that BBC is looking to roll-out across all platforms. Similar to iPlayer running on the Xbox 360, this Xbox One app makes use of voice and gesture.
Where do I get the iPlayer App?
Turn on your Xbox One console and make sure you’re signed in to Xbox Live. You don’t need an Xbox Live Gold Account for BBC iPlayer.
Search in the Xbox Store to find BBC iPlayer. When you have located this, you can install it by selecting the “Get it FREE” button.

For Xbox 360 users, BBC is planning to take a different approach with them because the Xbox 360 doesn’t have a technical platform that would work with their standard product. They are working on upgrading the BBC iPlayer application on the Xbox 360 to enable the availability of content for 30 days and the ability to find new channel content from Radio 1 and S4C.
