    Will we ever get the chance to dowload to our phones to watch back later?
    Or is this only available with phones with large fixed ram? (due to copy protection)

    afaik there is no iPlayer app. If BBC release one it seems unlikely due to requiring some sort of DRM which would be difficult on an android based phone.

    I was hoping that Flash 10.1 might allow access to the iPlayer via the web but I may be wrong.

    I guess the only way to do that is to download them to your pc then transfer it to your phone.The phone supports wmv files so it should be straight forward enough.I think the bbc are working on an app for android although apparently it will be out on Iphone first:mad:
