See, this is why game preservation is important.
This game is defunct.
Do note the game no longer works at all without modifications. This is most likely due to the game's servers being shut down. As a result, further official developments with the game are unlikely to happen.

The Wii's BBC iPlayer channel allowed you to stream BBC content, and pretty much the other stuff the website was capable of.

The service was discontinued on February 10, 2015 in favor for major infrastructure changes and limited resources.
