More on this on the BBC Blog:

And it's only for iOS (>=7.1), Android (>=4.1)
and Kindle Fire (HDX & >=HD 3rd gen) devices...

It does not - the BBC iPlayer Radio app is available
from the respective e-stores (Apple App Store, Google Play
and Amazon Appstore) only for UK IPs... ;-{
And the download CDNs are UK-only, too!
If you plan an overseas trip, the blog suggests:

Plea: Those of you in the UK that have the app installed
and running, can you perform some kind of URL sniffing
on your tablet/smartphone to possibly reveal the download
URLs template for those new (drm'd) audio downloads?
I'd like to take a look at their specs, in order to
hopefully provide an answer to:
Doesn't the app come with any indication at all for
the audio bitrate being played back?
