Ahead of other platforms and the iPhone SDK, doctor the BBC announce support for iPlayer using the iPhone and iPod Touch.

The BBC has launched a version of its iPlayer video on demand service for the Apple iPhone and iPod touch. It is the first time the service has been available on portable devices.

BBC News have a piece about it and the BBC internet blog has the full scoop. Why would people interested in Over the Air be interested? Well the team who worked on this should be at the event, and who knows maybe there might be some video feeds for people to build into their prototypes?

How would you describe Over the Air?
