Microsoft and BBC quiet on continued Xbox One iPlayer absence

The BBC and Microsoft have remained tight-lipped on the progress of an iPlayer app for Xbox One, despite a recent report that suggested its ongoing absence was due to problems integrating Kinect support.

An iPlayer app for Xbox One was confirmed before the console’s launch last November but is still to materialise.

The BBC did, however, provide an iPlayer app for PlayStation 4 upon that console’s launch, despite it arriving later.

A report whichsurfaced online last weeksuggested that the BBC was having problems working with Xbox One’s Kinect sensor, support for which is believed to be a required component for any Xbox One app.
