I have iPlayer on my MacBook, iPod and iPhone ...... is it possible, or will it ever be possible, to stream BBC iPlayer content to my Apple TV?

if so, how, if not, when?

lastly, if never, is there a way to achieve this by other means?

I did have some software that downloaded iPlayer content to iTunes, but it was very unreliable so I deleted it. Recommendations gratefully received

chances are I think you are a douche.

Unless the BBC feed is added to the list of things the ATV2 will stream directly from the web, it is unlikely you will ever get it. Unless you can download the content and move to iTunes you can't see it on your ATV at all at this point.

Maybe there is a hack if you jailbreak the ATV2....

And as always, if you truly want access on your TV to anything you have on your computer, it's time to set up a HTPC.

Whether you're looking at the ATV, Logitech Review, Tivo Premier, Boxee Box, Moxie, Slingbox or whatever other TV connectable gadget you're looking at, you should research and have enough knowledge to weigh the cost vs the services provided to know if it's an acceptable solution for your individual desires in such a device.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

..which could be out today. I have an iPad and ATV 2 and the best method looks to be to run BBC iplayer on the ipad and stream the video to ATV using AirPlay, which will, we're told, be included in 4.2.

I'm already using the iPad as a remote and it links easily to itunes on the study PC (sorry!) and to the ATV. Only question is whether AirPlay will really work with BBC iPlayer.

It's not the best solution (which would clearly be to have apps for the ATV2 and for BBC iplayer to be among the first but I won't hold my breath for that) but I'm hoping it will work and I'm nerdy enough to try it without shame.

iPlayer will not stream through Airplay ......... everything else is fine, there is no Airplay icon option showing when playing any iPlayer content through iPhone, iPod or on my Mac :-(

chances are I think you are a douche.
