BBC iPlayer reaches Canada, still missing in US

updated 01:10 pm EST, Thu December 1, 2011

Should reach US shortly after 'pilot' effort

The BBC has expanded its Global iPlayer service for the iPad to Canada, says The Hollywood Reporter. Users can access BBC TV shows on demand, something normally reserved for UK license fee payers, who can tap various forms of iPlayer for free. In Canada iPlayer access costs $9 a month, or $85 a year. Content is based on local demand and rights, but some initial shows include Blackadder, Fawlty Towers, Whitechapel, Hustle and MI-5.

Global iPlayer reached western Europe in July, and Australia in September. Still conspicuously missing in coverage though is the US. The country is expected to get access sometime in the near future, as the BBC wraps up a one-year pilot program.
