BBC iPlayer is Internet streaming's gift to the UK. The service is packed to the brim with British TV shows and documentaries, and the Android app offers a nice way to consume as much as you can.

And while you're at it, now you can get a taste of upcoming features as well. The BBC has launched an official beta testing program in the Play Store. It's open to anyone with a Google account and an Android device, as long as they live in the UK.

To sign up, just head over to the iPlayer beta testing page and hit the big, blue 'Become a Tester' button and download the app if you don't already have it installed. The process is pretty straightforward from there.

Your device needs at least Android 4.1 to partake in the fun.
