The BBC have released an iPlayer app free on the market, it does exactly as the mobile site for Android does, it streams programs to our phones.

It only works for Android 2.2+ because of the need for flash player.
Try it out!

Can anyone post the .apk file for this app? I am unable to download it and have tried market enabler and that isn't working either. Thanks in advance for any help.

If you can't post the download file, maybe some advice for where it might be found.

Personally I am not a fan of the app, and I will use the website instead. Streaming is choppy on the app, and perfect on the website.

Also, no download options! The Nokia N8 (I think) has had this since last year...

Just a FYI to everyone (as the news post makes it sound like you can stream over mobile network...):
  • This only works over WiFi (it will not stream over mobile networks)
  • You cannot pre-download anything.
  • If you do stream over WiFi the quality isn't very good.
  • If you want to see bbc iplayer content on your mobile, the best way is still to use their website.
