[access-uk] Re: netgem IPlayer

As I understand it, it isn't the I-player which they have stopped
producing but only the AD add-on so I suppose there is always the
potential for someone such as maybe the RNIB to take on that component
and offer it as an add on.

That's very bad news. I was hoping one day to get the IPlayer whenever I
can access Freeview. There are software and hardware devices that allows
you to watch freeview on your PC, but indeed where does it leave us in
terms of accessibility, particularly those who don't own a computer? Any
thoughts on this will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
