It's not about "love for Sky" It's about the fact that the BBC is always behind the times and backwards when it comes to technology. Stodgy.
I don't think you could be more wrong. For example, first to operate a teletext service, first to offer NICAM stereo, first for widescreen format, first to trial and roll out DAB, first catch-up service, first to trial and broadcast in HD, first to implement red button extra channels, first to trial 3D and 4K broadcasts, etc. The BBC is normally the technology leader for the commercial operators to try to keep up with.

It relies on the BBC (and ITV, 4od, 5) wanting to make an app for the platform. For some reason or other they don't seem to be wanting to right now.

A very strange reasoned or no iplayer is given by the BBC here - http://www.imore.com/bbc-comes-clean-why-theres-no-iplayer-apple-tv (http://www.imore.com/bbc-comes-clean-why-theres-no-iplayer-apple-tv)

I don't really get their argument.m
