BBC iPlayer channel launching next week

The ‘soft launch’ of BBC iPlayer on Virgin Media happened a few weeks ago with it being available through the red button from any on-air BBC channel. From next week a BBC iPlayer channel will be added to the Virgin Media EPG. The news comes from an official Virgin Media press release (click here). The BBC iPlayer service will be fully integrated into the On Demand menus (like Catch Up TV) in a few months (the exact date is not yet confirmed).
