Earlier this year, BBC’s iPlayer iPad app extended their subscription-based streaming service to eleven European countries, and recently added Canada, Scandinavia, and Australia to top sixteen territories globally. Today the company has announced the app will be available on iPhone and iPod touch starting Thursday, December 8 (via TNW).
The global BBC iPlayer app is a Video-on-Demand (VoD) pilot subscription service which is different from the UK version of iPlayer, in which it gives international users access to an extensive archive of classic and contemporary British TV programmes.
The UK iPlayer service is more focused on catch-up TV, with a 30-day window to watch following the initial broadcast.
