BBC Iplayer Bigscreen

I found this front end to BBC Iplayer

BBC iPlayer - Bigscreen :: TV

It seems to be that this is a great front end for all those Freesat / Freeview set top boxes which will be able to connect to the internet and watch Iplayer.

It also look like a good front end for my HTPC - is there anyway to add it to Vista MCE?

Take a look at Tunerfree, it compiles the on demand web content for BBC1, BBC2, ITV, C4 and C5 into 1 easy to use front end usable within VMC. :thumbsup:

I actually have that and use it - its good, but seems to have some short comings.

Mainly Channel 4oD does not go full screen on my system.

I see in Win 7 that you can have 'virtual channels' so am wondering if in the future we will able to watch web TV without plugins etc...
