The BBC has updated its iPlayer app to alert users when their downloads are set to expire, helping to ensure TV fans don’t miss their favourite shows.
Many viewers prefer to download episodes and boxsets to watch while on the move to avoid eating into their mobile data plans.
Dan Taylor-Watt, head of BBC iPlayer, says: “Downloads are a great way to watch on the move, when commuting, or while you’re abroad, but it can be very frustrating if you forget that a download is about to expire and only realise once it’s too late.
“We’re reinventing BBC iPlayer for a new generation, with more personalised features, more box sets and UHD HDR content.
“We hope these new ‘last chance’ notifications will add to this, improving people’s experience of using the app and help to ensure that no-one misses out on watching their favourite BBC shows.”
