Wii web update wallops BBC iPlayer

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Nintendo’s latest Wii system software update “has caused BBC iPlayer to stop working”, the broadcaster has confirmed.

The update went live on 1 September and was designed to bring support for Flash 8 to the console’s Internet Channel, according to Nintendo.

But Wii owners have since filled up forums with complaints that the update has pressed pause on iPlayer functionality.

Grumbles range from the complete unavailability of the channel to programmes “going down” half way through. One disgruntled gamer described how, when browsing iPlayer by channel, lists were empty and scroll buttons don’t work.

A Nintendo spokeswoman was unaware of the issue. But the BBC told us: “We are currently investigating and hope to resolve the issues with the iPlayer website."

Anyone who hasn’t yet downloaded the Wii’s most recent update should still be able to access iPlayer without any problems, the BBC added. ®
