  • International iPlayer iPad app alphabetical menu

    Subscribers will be able to search for the content they want to view using this alphabetical search page.

    The iPad app also allows users to download content and watch it offline as well as stream programmes.

    "We have an exciting vision for what this service could become and will develop it based on feedback from within the markets," BBC Worldwide's president of worldwide networks and global iPlayer, Jana Bennett, said in a statement.

  • International iPlayer iPad app genre menu

    Like the UK iPlayer iPad app, content on the international version will be divided into eight genres, namely Comedy, Drama, Entertainment, Family & Kids, Lifestyle, Music & Culture, News Specials & Documentaries and Science & Nature. The menu of genres is shown above.

    New content will be added each week with themed collections from the BBC's archive material also in the pipeline - something the UK version doesn't currently offer. Programmes already on the app include Doctor Who, Top Gear and Sherlock as well as classics such as Only Fools and Horses and Fawlty Towers.
