BBC iPlayer Gets Social
The new iPlayer Beta, set to go live at the end of June, will add social features to the BBC’s popular streaming service. Registered users will be able to tie in their Twitter, Facebook and Messenger profiles, to share what they’re watching across their social graph. Good news!
