I am assuming you mean BBC iPlayer, because the news apps are fine on my HC Flyer. But be more specific because BBC has like 10 different apps. Some developers, such as HBO and BBC are way behind the times. Their apps are not compatible with Honeycomb. Look for tablet versions of the app, although I know there is no HBO GO tablet yet, which is pretty stupid on their part since the experience would be a lot better on a tablet than a phone.

checked today and the official BBC news app is now downloadable for HC on the flyer.

Other BBC news apps are third party I was talking about the single BBC authored one.

i had that with all browsers except builtin hc browser,maxthon,dolphin etc all seem to make bbc iplayer page state "phone not supported".
builtin hc browser doesnt but that has problems with sound sync for me.
mind adobe airs just this minute updated itself so sync might improve,dunno,android still leaves me bit cold compared to my years learning windows.

BBC iplayer app
Had another look today and I still can't install the BBC iPlayer App from the market place.

I have a rooted wifi only UK device running HC. I had this before the upgrade, has anyone got the app to install on a HC flyer yet ???

Thanks in advance

A new BBC iPlayer app update has just become available in the last few days.
I can not verify it will work on HC as I have downgraded to GB for this and other reasons but I suggest someone now give it a try on HC.
