BBC iPlayer Going HD

The BBC iPlayer is tentatively preparing to offer high definition streams and downloads.It will be interesting to bbchdiplayersee how UK ISP’s react to the increased load HD material may  bring to their infrastructures as many of them already impose bandwidth throttling techniques for users who consumer too much data during certain time of the day.

An Internet bandwidth test will determine the best quality available to each iPlayer user.

HD material is expected  to later be added to Virgin media boxes , playstation 3 and Freesat at some time in the future.
