The BBC has revealed more impressive figures for its catch-up TV service, the iPlayer.

Total requests for BBC iPlayer views online stand at 237 million to the end of November 2008, with a further 61 million TV requests to the end of October to view via Virgin Media's iPlayer offering.

Last month alone, the BBC reveals there were over 35 million requests to view online and, on average, over a million requests to view each day during the month.

It's not clear if these statistics take into account views through the iPlayer's mobile platform, on PMPs, via Sky, or indeed views through the Nintendo Wii, if not, the figures would easily go over the 300 million mark.
