Groundbreaking...

I wouldn't be surprised if the reason it isn't on the one at launch is that Microsoft are again trying to get it locked behind the Gold sub.

doesnt the xo have ie anyway?

Hardly surprising or ground breaking considering its on the current gen.

But will IE have flash?

@Don, it should do by now. Cant see any reason why it wouldnt be as good as on a phone/tablet

I'm not too fussed about BBC iPlayer. It usually always gives me a random buffer even though I have a fairly good connection, then restarts what ever I was watching lol.

As long as I have the ability to watch netflix and change my DNS settings all will be fine

[/quote]doubt it.

Adobe have lost interest in console browsers, they tend to allow it only on pc's and apps

-

expect it to be HTML5

MS can't put it behind the sub as it's already paid for by the tv licence and would break uk law if they did that.

I wouldn't be surprised if they are trying it again or trying to put off the iPlayer app so they have something from BBC Worldwide (their commercial arm), which they can lock behind the Gold sub.
