The BBC iPlayer Channel is a channel that allows you to use the BBC's video on demand services on the Wii. It was released on 18 November 2009 and can be downloaded from the Wii Shop Channel for free in the UK only. It has a title ID of 00010001-HCJP/48434a50. Attempting to use the BBC iPlayer Channel outside the UK results in an error stating that your IP address is not a UK IP address and that you must be in the UK to use the BBC iPlayer Channel.

Attempting to fool the Wii by using a region changer mod will also not work. The channel will load as if all is well and working, but once you attempt to play a TV episode or Radio station channel, you are confronted with an error, and are unable to continue.
