We knew the BBC was considering launching its iPlayer online video service for set top boxes like the Apple TV and possibly even the Xbox 360. But here's one I really didn't see coming. The BBC has announced plans to bring the iPlayer to Nintendo Wii users.

The iPlayer channel should go live for British Wii owners tomorrow, although the BBC is still working on the software and a more advanced version should be released later.

Apparently the BBC also plans to add iPlayer functionality to television sets/set top boxes soon. The service lets Brits watch any program that's aired on the BBC over the past week for free. The service is not likely to become available outside of the UK anytime soon, since it's funded by the television license fee paid by British residents.
