The BBC has begun rolling out its own specialized media player, dubbed the iPlayer. With it, users can watch their programming through a variety of devices, including consoles, connected televisions, mobile and tablet devices.

The company’s general director Tony Hall presented the player during the New Broadcasting House event in central London earlier this week, He explained that the service was meant to move away from a jukebox-style set-up, with re-engineering taking place with it from the ground up to make it easy to use.

Content is grouped together through Collections, which breaks up programs into series, season, event and even theme. Those who are into “binge watching” will also be pleased with the iPlayer’s ability to automatically line up a next program for viewing.

The iPlayer has begun rolling out in some markets already, while several native apps will launch within the next few months.
