Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console is not only good for playing games, but it also is able to keep you entertained in a different method – now that BBC’s iPlayer is made available on the home console. This would mean the popular on-demand TV service is now available on all the UK’s major gaming platforms, and this deal has certainly taken its own sweet time in coming – three years, to be exact, and thankfully, Microsoft finally relented from their original position of wanting to charge the user for all content viewed over it.
If you own an Xbox 360 and have a Kinect system to go along, you can always control the iPlayer using hand gestures and voice recognition, and some users will more or less know that this might just cause fights to break out under the same roof as people living in the same home as you look forward to gain control of the Xbox 360. Just how much gaming do you get on your Xbox 360 compared to watching movies and other content?
