BBC's New iPlayer App Gets A Hands-On

We heard about the BBC’s new iPad app for the iPlayer service yesterday (Android users, be patient, it’s coming), but the player itself escaped description. Today brings a hands-on from Pocket-Lint, who pronounce the app very strong, though the lack of offline viewing, they say, is troublesome.

The programs are, of course, only for UK residents, who already pay handsomely to have BBC access, but a pay service is in the works along with an Android version, so let’s hope it’s just a matter of time. After all, if you pay for BBC on your cable subscription or through another service, shouldn’t you get the same benefits as those in the UK?

Many more screenshots and impressions over there.
