BBC planning international iPlayer? The BBC is said to be planning on launching an international iPlayer service, one that will allow global users to watch BBC programming and stream BBC radio networks.
On the downside, there is no word on exact pricing yet but the service will be considered "premium," with content costing as much as $10 USD. The service may also include content from other UK broadcasters such as Channel 4.

Despite being "international," the BBC expects over 40 percent of global viewers to come from the United States. Archived content would also be available including thousands of documentaries.

The BBC is also working on a mobile service, with streaming episodes costing about $2 USD.
