Per the BBC, the BBC’s long-awaited iPad app has been updated to version 1.2.5 and is becoming available in Canada. The app debuted back in July bringing iPlayer streaming access to tablets across Western Europe, before taking its programs to Australia back in September. The app is currently retailing for $8.99 per month in the Canadian market for access BBC shows like Fawlty Towers, Whitechapel, and Hustle, but viewers in all 16 territories with access can snag one free episode per day through December 25th. The long wait has been stated as year-long pilot phase with a next step of opening it up to US audiences.
