BBC iPlayer To Have A Paid iPad App Soon

Posted Dec 2, 2010

The BBC is going to launch a subscription-based iPad application for their iPlayer service very soon. What makes this even more interesting is that they are launching it in the U.S. first rather than in the United Kingdom. “The U.S. is likely to get its hands on the app first, some time in the middle of next year,” states the Register. “If successful, BBC Worldwide — the broadcaster’s money-making division — will extend it to other areas.” The subscription prices are not yet known.
