, a new version of the catch-up TV service known as the iPlayer 3 will arrive as soon as technical issues with the sign-in process are resolved.
To quote: "Cross also noted that new functionality would be appearing on the application, including a For You section which would consist of shows you may be interested in.
There will also be more social network functionality, although it was unclear whether the Facebook and Twitter integration would make the move to the PS3.
The biggest problem the BBC is trying to overcome is signing into the app and how the BBC is going to implement this.
"We don't know whether to integrate it with the PSN signing in process or do something new," Cross explained."
