bbc iplayer statistics user count facts 2023BBC iPlayer is an online streaming platform and catch-up TV service provided by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). It allows viewers in the UK to watch a wide range of BBC programmes online, including TV shows, documentaries, films, and live events.

Users can access BBC iPlayer via the BBC website or through the iPlayer app on various devices, including smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, and gaming consoles. The service is free to use, although viewers in the UK are required to pay a TV licence fee to fund the BBC’s programming.

BBC iPlayer has a large library of content available, including both current and past programmes, and new episodes are often added shortly after they air on traditional TV. Users can also watch live broadcasts of BBC channels, including BBC One, BBC Two, and BBC News, as well as listen to BBC radio programmes.

In addition to streaming content, BBC iPlayer also allows users to download programmes to watch offline for up to 30 days. The service has been a popular choice for UK viewers since its launch in 2007, and it continues to evolve with the changing media landscape.
