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.

Isn't this wifi-only; not available via 3G?

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...
