Following on from our recent announcement (and many others related to this!), Panasonic have today released the software update via their website which you can download and install to access BBC iPlayer.
The updates are for the original Blu-ray/DVD Freesat receivers, the DMR-BS850, DMR-BS750 and DMR-XS350; they can be downloaded through the following links: Continue reading Panasonic DMR-BS850, BS750 XS350 iPlayer Update
Update (16/02/11) – There was clearly no love in the air at Panasonic when they missed the 14th Feb software update, but have now released a revised date of 21st Feb (network) and 22nd Feb (over the air) for their DMR-BS850, DMR-BS750 and DMR-XS350EB iPlayer update. Whilst these continual delays are frustrating, at least they have presented us with a new date which hopefully means they are getting closer!
Original post (25/01/11) – Panasonic have updated their FAQ section today to suggest a
another “tentative” release date for BBC iPlayer on their previous Blu-ray/DVD models (DMR-BS850, DMR-BS750 and DMR-XS350EB); their date set in jelly is Valentines day (14th Feb 2011), could love be in the air for those still waiting?

With the launch of the new range of Panasonic Freesat receivers (DMR-BS880, BS780 and XS380), it is worth pointing out that there is very little to separate them from the previous version other than the usual Panasonic yearly freshen up.
With this in mind, there are some absolutely cracking deals available on the previous versions whilst stocks last; so if you are considering an all singing all dancing Freesat receiver, with either Blu-ray recorder or DVD recorder in-built, then this would certainly be a better value option than paying out for the brand new version with the initial over-inflated price tag.
These deals are whilst stocks last, and while the price will continue to fall until sold, they are now at absolute bargain levels (prices include delivery):
Panasonic DMR-BS850, complete with Blu-ray recorder and 500GB hard drive
Best Price: £406.95
Panasonic DMR-BS750, complete with Blu-ray recorder and 250GB hard drive
Best Price: £361.80
Panasonic DMR-XS350, complete with DVD recorder and 250GB hard drive
Best Price: £225.99
