BBC Worldwide brings best of British TV to European fans with the BBC iPlayer App for iPad
BBC Worldwide, is offering audiences across Europe the first-ever opportunity to delve into a digital mix of classic and contemporary British TV programming with the launch of the new global BBC iPlayer App, available exclusively on iPad.
This brand-new video on demand subscription service, launching first in Western Europe, will deliver the award-winning programming upon which the BBC's history and heritage is built, to viewers in 11 markets. For €6.99 a month (or €49.99 for an annual subscription), the app will initially be available in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, The Republic of Ireland, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland.
The UK and global version of the BBC iPlayer are very different offerings. BBC iPlayer in the UK is the on demand TV and Radio service that gives licence fee payers the opportunity to watch live TV and the last seven days' programming on hundreds of devices, across four screens. The global and commercial version is entirely funded by BBC Worldwide. The fundamental aim of the service is to realise more value overseas from British TV content to generate revenues to support the BBC.
