The BBC's iPlayer catchup service will finally arrive on Xbox 360 next week, according to reports.
Eurogamer claims that the app will next week join similar offerings from fellow UK broadcasters Channel 4 and Channel 5 on Xbox 360. ITV Player is due later this year.
While iPlayer has been available on PS3 since 2009, it was feared the service would never make it to Xbox 360. Microsoft reportedly wanted it to be only available to Xbox Live Gold members, with the BBC insisting ensure UK viewers could access it for free.
That thorny issue was worked out - with Microsoft seemingly relaxing its terms as it seeks to reposition its console as an all-in-one, multimedia solution. The Metro dashboard update, released in December, heralded the arrival of video apps from a host of content providers around the world.
