Download shows to your mobile with BBC iPlayer

photo Today the BBC have made a new version of their BBC iPlayer App available to iPhone and iPad owners. This new version not only allows them to stream shows to their mobile but also download them to their device to watch later.

Users will be able to save any programme for up to 30 days – but once you hit play, have to finish watching it within a week.

Available on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices, the feature will be coming to Android devices soon.

Last month alone there were 30 million requests for iPlayer programmes via a mobile or tablet, according to the BBC.

"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," said Daniel Danker, general manager of programmes and on-demand for the BBC.

We understand that ITV are considering adding a similar feature to their app but that they would be charging for it.
