BBC iPlayer Global App to Launch on iPhone, iPod Thursday

While the U.S. remains on the waiting list for the global BBC iPlayer, the service is set to debut on the iPhone and iPod touch in several fortunate regions this Thursday.

Originally available on the iPad in 11 different countries, the service has now grown to include 16 countries, with Canada being the latest addition.

This expansion is part of the BBC’s strategy to offer its vast television content globally through a subscription-based video-on-demand service. Subscribers can enjoy a wide array of shows, from the comedic genius of Fawlty Towers to the enduring adventures of Doctor Who.

As the BBC continues to extend its pilot program, there’s growing anticipation that the U.S.

might soon join the list of countries with access to the app.
