Late last year the BBC announced the will be overhauling iPlayer in a similar way to Netflix. However COVID-19 came and there hasn't been any news since. I'm not sure if the will still do it.

Could you detail this further, I don’t remember hearing anything about this so if you have an original source then please share it.


The iPlayer app had a slight update at the beginning of the year, making boxes a bit smaller, and making it easier to see All the programmes from a channel/category.

This is what the original poster is referring to.
Do you even read these?

I feel like it may be delayed to next year because of the pandemic

Agreed. Development probably stalled because of it, that's why we've heard no more about it.

I think branding anything with "2020" at this point is just asking for trouble.
