The BBC has announced that, from December 8, their Global iPlayer App will be available to download for iPhones and the iPod Touch. The App has been available for some months now on the iPad but the BBC is now extending it’s reach to all of the iOS devices. The BBC will also be bringing more British content to the service that was not originally aired on the BBC’s channels including shows such as “Father Ted”
Jana Bennett, President Worldwide Networks and Global BBC iPlayer, said:“This platform extension shows how Global iPlayer isn’t just about moving TV to tablet devices, it’s also about a mobile strategy – about truly getting TV everywhere in a way that it hasn’t been before. We also want the global BBC iPlayer to be truly representative of the whole gamut of British creative output, to represent everything that is great about British content – not just the Best of British TV but the Best of British Culture.”
