BBC iPlayer app to launch for iPad this week, February 10th

iPlayer app to finally hit iOS devices this week

BBC iPlayer is to hit the Apple iPad in app form later this week as a Beeb head leaks the February 10th arrival via micro-blogging site Twitter.

Letting slip full details of the imminent launch Geoff Marshall, Interactive Operations Manager for the BBC, tweeted via his personal feed: "iPlayer App for iPad is being released this Thursday - 10th Feb. 3G connection is browse only. Browse+Playback requires Wi-Fi."

Adding that the information came directly from an internal BBC briefing, Marshall’s claims suggest the iPlayer app will be exclusively available for the iPad from Thursday with iPhone touting iPlayer fans facing a continued wait for on-demand BBC content on the move.

Announcing in February of last year that iPlayer would be making its way to iOS, it is believed that the BBC will roll out the iPad version of the service in the US with stateside users required to pay a subscription fee to view the bevy of catch-up content.

Will you be adding the BBC iPlayer app to your iPad this Thursday? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
