Termination of BBC iPlayer services on 2011-2012 Sony Blu-Ray players and Home Cinema Systems

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check Applicable Products and Categories for details.

    Why is the BBC iPlayer service terminated?

    The BBC iPlayer service will no longer work on Sony Blu-Ray players and Blu-ray Home Cinema Systems (2011 & 2012 models) from October 22, 2020, onwards. 
    Because the BBC updated its iPlayer application with new security certificates, they no longer support our older Sony devices. 

    The BBC already released the following notice, which should have been displayed on your Blu-Ray Player.
