BBC Worldwide closing BBC Global iPlayer.
The BBCs commercial arm, BBC Worldwide, have announced that the BBC Iplayer Global will be closed down within the next month or so.
BBC Global Iplayer was available via an ITunes app, and allowed people to watch limited BBC TV content outside the UK.
BBC Global Iplayer was specifically designed for expats, to enable them to watch BBC TV content. BBC Global Iplayer did not have as much content as the UK version of Iplayer, due to copyright and broadcasting rights.
