"Last month we made BBC iPlayer available on Apple?s iPhone and iPod Touch devices, the first of many mobile platforms that we hope to support."
That's nice. How about supporting a standard desktop platform before wasting yet more of my money on supporting proprietary, short-lived faddish platforms?
"The video quality is usually even better when iPlayer programmes are played back on a TV than on your computer screen."
No, it isn't. The video quality is much, much worse, particularly if you're using S-Video rather than RGB, which is why you can't see the compression artefacts.
"If you have an LCD or plasma TV, chances are that it will have a Video Graphics Array input"
I'm not sure expanding that acronym is really helping anyone. Besides which, if you have an analogue TV made in the last fifteen years, it almost certainly has an RGB SCART input.
