People who cannot bear to miss their favourite television shows while on holiday could sell their mobiles and switch to an Apple iPad.

That is because the BBC has launched an app for its iPlayer service that will work abroad on the device.

For a monthly subscription fee, iPad owners will be able to access all of the corporation’s latest programmes as well as classic episodes from the past.

It will also offer the potential to download shows from the portal and then watch them offline.

“We have an exciting vision for what this service could become and will develop it based on feedback from within the markets,” said Jana Bennett, president of Worldwide networks and global iPlayer.

To begin, the app can be used in 11 nations, including Ireland, France, Italy, Spain and Portugal.

Another recent app release was Sky Go, which allows people to watch Sky programmes and news services from their phones.
