BBC brings its revamped iPlayer to Sky+ HD boxes

Sky's in the middle of rolling out a big electronic programme guide (EPG) update to connected Sky+HD boxes. Part of that overhaul will see it present new ways to deliver online content, which has opened the door for the BBC to extend its latest iPlayer revamp beyond the desktop. The Beeb says it has worked closely with Sky to overhaul and update its aging iPlayer UI, making it easier for you to access programmes and navigate through listings, but also provide access to iPlayer exclusives and premieres (think Glastonbury or Radio 1's Big Weekend) for the very first time. If you haven't got it the new programme guide just yet, sit tight, Sky says it will have completed the rollout by the end of May.
