BBC Global iPlayer is closing permanently between 26th May and 26th June 2015. Any subscriptions will be honoured in full and auto-renewals will be switched off automatically after your final subscription term during this period. You will only be able to watch your downloads until the day your subscription lapses. This date can be found on your Subscriptions tab on the iTunes store.

We would like to thank all of our subscribers for using the service. We are now developing plans to launch new digital services across multiple devices.

If you have any further questions, email us at

Kind regards,

The Global iPlayer Team
