BBC iPlayer Available From Next Week

**Update 21/12/2009**
The code for accessing BBC iPlayer has been released to us for all of you to use; the code is 5483. Please note BBC iPlayer is currently in beta test so may still have bugs and glitches, plus is only available via Humax Freesat HD or Freesat+ receivers with the latest software versions. We’d ask that you have a play and leave your comments/feedback below so BBC/Freesat can take the information to assist in the development before an official launch in the New Year. For more information on the BBC iPlayer trial with Freesat, please visit this page.

How BBC iPlayer Will Connect

Though not officially announced, we have it from a very reliable source that BBC/Freesat will release the BBC iPlayer code to the general public from early next week.

This will give those with a Humax Freesat HD or Humax Freesat+ receiver the opportunity to test out the service over the Christmas period enjoying all there is to offer through the festive season from the BBC.

The BBC iPlayer setup video can be found here

All other Freesat HD and Freesat+ makes/models will be able to enjoy BBC iPlayer some time in the new year.

  1. How can I configure my Humax Foxsat-HD box to receive iPlayer via a selective proxy, the reason being I am a TV License payer temporarily residing overseas?

    I have configured my Humax Foxsat-HD box correctly, can display the iPlayer home page, can select a programme, but clicking display “loading” indefinitely. I presume the “not available in your area” message is not displayed.

    I am able to use a selective proxy from my PC over my broadband connection.
