BBC iPlayer now available on 3G for iPhone users?

28 Oct

I’m not sure why I even bothered, after getting the usual ‘Streaming BBC iPlayer programmes on a 3G connection is blah blah blah’, but today I thought I’d catch a bit of Hidden whilst walking to lunch.

 To my surprise, it loaded up fine. Hidden, then Panorama, all shows on the current BBC iPlayer mobile site that I tried seemed to work.

The player guidelines still say that 3G playing is not possible, so can anyone verify that iPhone viewing is possible on O2 3G?

UPDATE: This has been verified by a colleague, who has kindly sent me a screengrab (my power button is broken)
