To quote Cyrus Saihan, head of Business Development, BBC Future Media...
Today I can let you know that we have signed a deal with Microsoft that will enable us to bring BBC iPlayer to the Windows phone platform.
We will be releasing a shortcut to BBC iPlayer in the near future which will be available in the Windows Phone Store, enabling the BBC iPlayer website to work on Windows Phone 7.5 and 8 via a live tile.
This shortcut will wrap the BBC iPlayer mobile website together with our media player.
Just a live tile with a web link? Sound's like a 3rd class citizen behind the current broken mess that Android users are having to deal with on Google Play, which currently has 6,258 1 star reviews!
