    At last..

    The BBC in all its splendour available in the US at last. A proper evolutionary leap from previous iterations of the platform...now having completed this gem, let’s get to work on the options for access to the tele as well...

    Excellent audio entertainment

    I listen to the BBC every night when going to bed. I can’t miss “ I’m sorry I’ll read that again “,. During my time in the Merchant Marine the BBC world service was what we listened to at sea.

    Good app with one feature request

    When you know that is user is an international user, please do not show them programs that are not available to international users. This just becomes frustrating.
