At the launch of the Nokia Lumia 610 in UK a Nokia spokesman told the Inquirer that the BBC IPlayer will be coming to Windows Phone very soon.

"BBC Iplayer is expected to arrive on Windows Phone within the next few weeks, a sign that the Windows Phone Marketplace is attracting more developers" he said.

He also confirmed that a Sky Go app was also on the way, but was still "a good few months" out.  He did however not have any announcements about other steaming TV services such as 4OD, ITV Player and 5 on Demand.

In March the head of iPlayer at BBC, David Price, confirmed to DigitalSpy that the company was working with Microsoft to ensure Windows Phone 7 users will have access to the catch-up TV service at some point.

Leila Martine, director of Windows Phone was also at the London event, and told attendees that the Windows Phone app Marketplace is growing at a faster pace than the app stores for Android and IOS. It’s presently home to 85,000 applications.
