BBC has made some changes to its popular iPlayer to include a new desktop client and HD streaming and downloads. The new player supports direct WMV downloads that allows shows to be downloaded in formats supported by WMP devices.

That feature eliminates the need to install client software and makes it dead simple to play files on Windows Media Center and extender devices like the Xbox 360.

The previous iPlayer required a complex setup to play files on the Xbox 360 smoothly. With the Xbox now easier to support owners of the Microsoft console can get the same iPlayer love as the Wii and PS3 get.
