The BBC has introduced mobile downloads on the BBC iPlayer, enabling users to download BBC TV programmes to smartphones or tablets.
Multiple programmes can be downloaded at the same and programmes downloaded from the UK can also be viewed abroad for up to 30 days.
"With mobile downloads for BBC iPlayer, you can now load up your mobile phone or tablet with hours and hours of BBC television programmes, then watch them on the road, on the tube, on a plane, without worrying about having an internet connection or running up a mobile data bill. Viewers have up to 30 days to begin watching a downloaded programme, so you can even fill up your device and take the BBC with you on holiday.", said Daniel Danker, General Manager, Programmes and On-Demand for the BBC.
The BBC iPlayer app can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store. Audiences who already have the BBC iPlayer app installed will be prompted to update their app via the iTunes App Store.
The new mobile downloads feature is initially available on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices and will come to Android devices soon.
