BBC iPlayer App Will Arrive For Australian iPads By End Of Year

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]
