Microsoft has added BBC iPlayer to the Xbox.

Various sites last week expressed their surprise about the upcoming the release, but it's one Microsoft and the Corporation signalled back in October 2011, as Reg Hardware reported at the time.

Other IPTV services promised back then include Channel 4's 4OD and Channel 5's Demand Five. They made it in plenty of time - neither Microsoft nor the BBC said why it had taken so long to port iPlayer over.

But it is Kinect-compatible, Microsoft said, noting that "or the first time it is possible for BBC iPlayer users to discover and play programmes using hand gestures and voice recognition".

Xbox owners, look for a Live update today. ®
