Last week we reported that the Nintendo Wii can now run the BBC iPlayer streaming TV service, and now there are rumours that Sony's PS3 might be the next console to work with the service.
There's no official announcement yet from the BBC or Sony, but there's evidence on the web that adapting the PS3 to run iPlayer may not be that difficult.
An enterprising PS3 owner has managed to get the iPlayer up and running on a PS3. Type the URL www.ps3iplayer.com in to a PS3 browser and it will, apparently, play streaming iPlayer programmes.
We haven't tried it ourselves yet, but reports elsewhere suggest it can work, although sometimes with mixed success.
Anthony Rose, the BBC's head of digital media technology, has written about ps3iplayer on his own blog, and says he's impressed. He also says iPlayer on the PS3 is being investigated and will be launched officially "in due course".
