The BBC has announced an iPlayer download version for Mac and Linux users more than a year after it opted to favour Microsoft’s DRM regime. The widely criticised move limited the service to Windows users although a streaming version for users of Windows, Mac and Linux computers has been available since last year.
The BBC’s iPlayer service is to allow viewers to catch up on every episode of some of their favourite series with the introduction of a new “series stacking” feature set to go live from 13 September 2008.
