The Beeb’s letting loose an international iPlayer app today for 11 Western European countries, and later this year, they’ll dip their toe in the water for a year in Australia, the US, and Canada. Anyone for streaming Doctor Who?
While it’ll be ad-supported, users will also have to pay 50 Euros/$70 for an annual subscription, or 7 Euros/$10 per month, and will have two bonuses over the British users of the app — streaming-support over 3G connections, instead of just Wi-Fi. The Guardian has reported they’ll also be able to download episodes for viewing later, and offline. Just don’t get sucked into watching Eastenders, folks — I hear it’s addictive. [The Guardian]
