      I was kind of hoping that it would go live today or perhaps this week, but I have heard nothing to confirm exact details.

      I'm keeping an eye on the BBC Internet Blog - when the announcement comes from BBC, I reckon it will almost certainly be on there first and the news channels will pick it up from there too:

      I thought it was live on the new Amstrads?

      The EPG may be enabled in readiness, beta testers may even be able to see & download some content sometimes - but there has been no official announcement as yet from BBC and there was nothing about it on iPlayer website when I looked yesterday, so I'd say it's not properly and fully live yet!

      Whoops, sorry, I thought that as they had the new EPG they would have the iPlayer too. I like it

      BSkyB Q1 results announcement is on 1 November, so I reckon BBC iPlayer will go live on Sky no later than then.

      I liked it this weekend just gone actually - when I totally failed to realise, until idly browsing the content on Saturday morning, that ep 1 of a new series of something I like had been shown on BBC1HD the previous night. No more watching on my computer - happy days!

      Re: BBC iPlayer to launch in Autumn

      I have BBC iPlayer on my TV but if I want to watch something I have to watch it 'Live', I can't record it to watch later. Well I probably could put it on to my DVD recorder, but that's a bit of a hassle. With the Sky one, I can set it to download/record and watch it later at my leisure. This makes a big difference to me.
