The BBC iPlayer app is really tremendous and of course if you’re in the UK you can enjoy it for free as long as you pay your TV licence. In fact the BBC started a global pilot several months ago and it is now available in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, The Republic of Ireland, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

The US, Canada and many other parts of the world have been desparate to access Dr Who, Top Gear and of course our period dramas for ages and now they’re a step closer. That’s if of course, you’re in Canada, it’s going to take a little longer to roll out to the US.

But, if you’re in Canada you can now access it, providing you stump up $8.99 per month. If you’re feeling a bit glum in the US, don’t be, it should be coming to you soon.
