Panasonic DMP-BD65 & BBC iPlayer

I’ve been reading reviews of the Panasonic DMP-BD65 Blu-ray player.

One of the reviews on this site says ‘Internet facility - can now get BBC iPlayer’.

Is this correct? :confused:

Got it yesterday. It would seem it doesn't. :(

Anyone know if iplayer is available yet for the BD65?

I don't believe there are any plans to make it available.

I've only seen Panasonic talking about putting it on freesat-enabled devices. In this statement, Panasonic say "the BBC have only made iPlayer available as part of the freesat service and there are no plans at present to introduce it to the Viera Cast feature."

So, kinda blaming the BBC, but in reality too cheap or too lazy to make the same arrangement Sony did to get it on the much cheaper BDP-S370.

Sucks, huh? I'd love to hear definitively otherwise.
