The Xbox One will be able to plug a major void in its on-demand content offering before the year is out, with the news BBC is finally launching an iPlayer app.
"I am happy to announce that we're aiming to launch new BBC iPlayer on Xbox One by the end of this year," wrote the iPlayer's executive project manager Marcus Parnwell.
Elsewhere in the blog, the BBC detailed which connected TVs, Blu-ray players and devices can expect to receive the updated interface that rolled-out on mobile devices and desktop earlier this year.
The Corporation also said it was walking towards bringing the update to YouView, Virgin Media and BT set top boxes later this year.
Parnwell added: "Whilst I cannot announce dates, we are targeting this year for these platforms. Similarly, other devices on our legacy version of BBC iPlayer will be migrated to the new version this year as well."
