    Anyway for iPlayer users on PS3 (for example) to download shows?

    Maybe to expand on this a little - the PS3 and the 360 both have hard-drives, so it would seem to be a no-brainer to offer applications which allow you to download content just like you can on PCs, mobile phones, etc.

    I can't imagine that Sony or Microsoft would be against offering their customers such functionality. Even if it wasn't part of a self-contained application, both consoles have the ability to play DRM-protected video, so it may just be a case of allowing a suitably formatted download which can be played in their built-in video players (similar to the sideloading service for mobile phones).

    No, not on the PS3. However the Xbox 360 can be a Media Extender so you can download Windows Media Player version to your computer and stream it locally. I know this isn't want you want but it's all that's available at present.

    Surely you can do that on the PS3 too. Download it as a wmv on your pc and stream it to the playstation (or maybe copy it over).
