Hot news from the BBC: as of today, there is an app that allows you to watch BBC programs on your ipad! YAY, we love the iPlayer and we will be sure to download the app! With this app you can watch popular BBC shows, such as the ever dramatic Eastenders, Top Gear, Doctor Who and (here’s hoping anyway) Strictly Come Dancing!

With this app you can watch live BBC TV (all four channels!) and listen to live BBC radio (there are like a thousand stations). You can make a list of your favorite shows and they’ll be added to your playlist as soon as they air. To add favorite shows, simply drag and drop them into your fave list. Easy as pie! The app also features a TV guide so you can browse and see what else is on.

Apparently, according to The Guardian, the app will be available in Canada, Australia and the US later this year, but until then it will be available in 11 European countries, including Belgium, Germany, Italy, Spain, France and The Netherlands. The BBC says it’s a pilot for 1 year. The app is free to download, but in order to watch anything you need a subscription, which comes to 6.99 euros a month or 49.99 a year. Personally, I am very excited and will download asap!

We rate this app 4 out of 5 stars
