ITV’s on-line TV service – Catchup – is now Mac compatible. You’ll need to install Microsofts Silverlight plugin, the Adobe-Flash-like addon that’s required for it to work.
We’ve just tried it and as you can see from the screen grab above it’s v1.0 but still classed as a beta. Still, seems to work OK in our brief tests and good to see a little more progress for the Mac users.
Programs from the BBC’s iPlayer can currently be streamed to a Mac but still doesn’t offer the download capability of the Windows version. [Update – here’s a Mac app to download BBC iPlayer shows – thanks Gavin]
