iPlayer Global iPad app price announced
Be proud of the BBC for ten dollars a month
The BBC’s director general Mark Thompson has told a London conference that the broadcaster’s global iPlayer will soon be available to users outside the UK for a US$10 per month subscription.
The release date, however, remains vague – “sometime this year” is the nearest that most reports are able to get.
And in the creeping trend towards gift-wrapping popular services for Apple, the BBC’s catch-up viewing service will be an iPad application.
Non-iPad users in Australia will presumably have to switch on their national broadcaster, the ABC, to catch repeats of BBC shows. ®
