BBC iPlayer hits the iPad Thursday


According to a tweet picked up by TNW, BBC iPlayer will finally get an iPad edition on Thursday.

This will bring really lush premium content to a lovely screen. Of course, it’s a minority of Brits that have iPads but we’re likely to see a spike in adoption when the new one comes out at the end of Feb.

This is another reason to get it.

Looks like the video will only work on a WiFi connection. And we think this will only apply to UK users..
