For anyone that hasn’t heard, iPlayer is a runaway success. The latest stats can be found in this Guardian piece, but the headline is:

Traffic to the BBC’s broadband TV catchup service iPlayer continued to
rise during April, the broadcaster said today, with 21 million requests
for streamed and downloaded shows during the month.

It is being so successful that the UK’s IP networks are getting flooded and ISPs are up in arms. As a result the net neutrality debate is finally being held in earnest over here.
