BBC iPlayer Android app introduces offline viewing downloads

BBC iPlayer for Android introduced offline viewing downloads to their viewers. Consumers can download BBC TV shows for free to a range of Android devices and keep them for up to 30 days and continue watching them for seven days after the first time they start playing the video.

The new feature will work on Android devices and will be running the Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean variants of Google's Android software.

“Our figures show this will mean 70% of Android app users with compatible devices will be able to use this functionality from today – and over the coming months we will be extending this to include new Android devices as well as some older ones," said David Berlin is Senior Product Manager, TV & iPlayer Mobile Applications in BBC Future Media.

The update is available through the Google Play store.
