Back in September, the BBC iPlayer jumped to version 2.0 and introduced the ability for users to download full episodes and store them for up to 30 days. At the time, the feature only worked on the eleven devices that the developers tested. Now it should work on any Android device running Ice Cream Sandwich or above.


Video downloads still function the same as before. Stored media will automatically delete itself seven days after first being viewed. Users can download new content only via a Wi-Fi connection, and they have the choice to save either standard or high-quality video.

If you're still experiencing problems downloading videos to your device, this page might explain why. As usual, the app remains a UK exclusive available via the widget below.
