Watch new Doctor Who on your Wii

BBC and Nintendo collaborate to bring iPlayer to console

As from today, the BBC iPlayer will be compatible with the Wii Internet Channel, so Wii owners can now watch the latest series of Doctor Who (for example) on Wii whenever they want.

Users will need to direct their Wii browser to bbc.co.uk/iplayer and simply select Doctor Who - or whatever else is available - which you'll currently find at number two in the most popular chart for some bizarre reason.

Surely people don't actually use the iPlayer to watch anything else, do they?

UPDATE: Nintendo promised to send an email to every Wii to confirm the service had gone live. Our office Wii has yet to receive the email, but iPlayer is working through the Internet Channel fine anyway. So go enjoy!
