New, 4 comments

The BBC is "working to bring" a version of its iPlayer streaming app to the Xbox One, Digital Spy reports.

A BBC spokesperson confirmed that an app, a version of which is available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii and allows users to stream BBC programming, is in the works for Microsoft's next-gen console, but declined to provide any specifics.

"BBC iPlayer is already available to audiences on over 1,000 devices and platforms in the U.K.," the spokesperson said. "While we are working to bring BBC iPlayer to Xbox One in the future, we have no further details to share at this time."

Microsoft revealed the first wave of Xbox One apps last week, which includes Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, Netflix and many territory-specific apps. Check out a 12-minute video tour of the Xbox One interface to see some of those apps in motion. Sony's PlayStation 4 will launch with a similar slate of apps.
