The BBC announced today that it had launched a version of its iPlayer specifically for the iPhone. The software allows iPhone users to download BBC programs from the last seven days over a Wi-Fi connection.

Users can’t download over the mobile phone network. According to the BBC it is working on version of the player for many more devices as well. A post on the BBC internet blog said, “We started with iPhone because it is the device most optimized for high quality video currently available.”

The software also works with the iPod touch in addition to the iPhone and according the BBC the reason a Wi-Fi connection is required is that the EDGE network is too slow for streaming. I hope that means that the programming will be high quality visually, since YouTube streams over the EDGE network without issue.
