iPlayer now avalible in Europe
BBC’s player made its first international appearance last month. Classic BCC TV programmes are now exclusively available on iPlayer’s iPad app in Europe. Programmes include: Top Gear, Doctor Who, Only Fools and Horses and Eastenders. However the programmes available differ based on the country that they are being viewed in.
Wow for free? Unfortunately, no. The app costs €7 per month or €50 per year. This is roughly a third of the television licence fee in the UK.
The BBC are hoping that this new service will cut down piracy rates, the BBC are planning on adding more content if the service proves to be popular.
