Freesat BBC iPlayer trial coverage widened

Now available to all Humax Freesat set-top box owners

Intelligent flash storage arrays

The BBC has extended its iPlayer-on-Freesat trial to more punters by publishing the "secret code" they need to try out the service.

That said, since the code appeared on the internet last month, it's hasn't really been a secret for some time.

The code, 5483, has to be punched in after entering the BBC's red button digital text service. Currently, it only works on Humax-made Freesat boxes and of these only one connected to the internet over a broadband connection of at least 1Mb/s.

Freesat promised the trial would be extended to all other manufacturers' Freesat set-top boxes "in the coming months". ®
