"Q: Is there a BBC iPlayer App that works outside the UK?
Yes, BBC Worldwide have developed a commercial version of BBC iPlayer
(Global) for Western European audiences, designed to generate revenues
from an international digital audience that supports the licence fee.
It is currently available as an iPad and iPhone application via the
Apple App Store. Visit the BBC iPlayer (Global) YouTube channel for
further information."
