  2. I want it! BBC makes some of the best documentaries but I'm American. Damn.
  3. The BBC dont bother with android, well why would they, when they've bought 1000s of apple devices with license payer money.
    well heres 1 license fee payer, who still after a year cannot watch iplayer on the go on a non apple tablet, it works for apples, why not samsung,htc anyone else?
    bbc is really crap the news is full of biased inane drivel (on jubliee boat thing a presenter "oo look theres my friend on that boat"), they wont invest in shows (sherlock whole season = 2 eps unless it invloves some washed up has been dancing around like a prick)
    they sell off F1 contract 2 years before renewal and then lie to the ppl, all 20 races on bbc? no, only 10 live and 10 partial highlights.
    its is bbc, its stinks of hippy dirt, it looks good, but wont work. and its only for the chosen few with apple devices.

    Wow BBC hate!

    BBC are pretty good, the government has eaten into there budget, so they have less money to chuck about, the Olympics coverage was amazing, 25 Dedicated HD channels set up just for the Olympics,

    They provide very good news coverage (I just with the news channel was in HD) and the bbc news website is the best source for news IMO.

    No. The Olympics coverage was a complete disgrace. I wondered if world peace had accidentally broken out during the Olympics, because I'd heard no news to the contrary. A full twenty four seperate channels dedicated to the Olympics were set aside and yet they still saturated the main BBC channels with wall to wall Olympic drivel.
