iPlayer exists as an app so fully expecting to see it in 1.0

However I don't believe any of those others exist!
(Would be good to see SeeSaw in there too!)

I'm not fully expecting anything after reading all these posts :D, they were expecting Hulu but it doesn't work. The BBC iPlayer app isn't official so could break at any point.

Incorrect - the iplayer app is an officially supported boxee application. it was fixed just last week.

iplayer will definitely be supported.

in the wise words of the boxee team "watch this space" for more.

I would love to see:


love film
seesaw
TV Catch up


seesaw sort of covers 4od/itv/five.

Apparently the boxee staff are "difficult to get hold of" - according to a contact who wishes to progress an application for the above

:confused: By official I mean made by the BBC, if it was made by the BBC then it would always work, as it's not you're always in danger of it breaking like you say it did last week

LoveFilm would be good!

I see what you mean. I dont think BBC 'officially' support any of the applications for any device (be it PS3, google Tv, wii, boxee box) but i dont see this as a problem.

The PS3 and Wii apps are by the BBC, the PS3 just loads

Sadly, it says that selecting iPlayer HD caused BB to crash out of the app :(
