iPlayer updates for Panasonic Freesat kit

A lot of people around various forums have been asking about when Panasonic – the first manufacturer to produce Freesat-compatible TV sets – will be updating their sets to provide access to the iPlayer.

While other manufacturers have rolled out updates, they’ve been somewhat noticeable by their absence for the Panasonic TVs, and some early adopters have been questioning Panasonic’s commitment to their older equipment.

I’ve now managed to get some rough dates from Panasonic, which will hopefully please at least some people. I have a V10 LCD myself, and iPlayer in the summer will be most welcome.

  • 2010 model year sets should have iPlayer at launch
  • 2009 year sets (which includes the V10, G10, G15) are anticipated to have it ‘middle of the year’, so around June/July
  • 2008 year sets ‘by the end of the year’

More news as and when I have it.
