iPlayer is still Defective by Design

Today the BBC announced that iPlayer is now available to non-Windows users, via a streaming service. Once again, we must ready ourselves to ask the BBC why they are still forcing users to install proprietary software in order to watch BBC content.
Adobe's Flash Player restricts your freedom by refusing to allow you basic freedoms. You cannot even run Flash Player on certain machines without Adobe's permission, and yet the BBC is forcing the British public to install and run this software, without consideration for their rights.
