BBC launches iPlayer

The much awaited video downloaded service from BBC that uses a special iPlayer (works only on Windows XP) has arrived. The product is still in beta and will have limited availability at least in the early going.

Another UK-based TV network, Channel 4 has a similar service, called 4OD. If you try iPlayer, let us know what you think.
