BBC iPlayer has revolutionised UK TV and offers a comprehensive platform on a whole range of devices to watch BBC TV live and via catchup.  Other UK TV broadcasters have followed suit with ITV launching ITV Hub and Channel 4 with their All 4 streaming service.

Some of the most popular BBC TV shows include: Call the Midwife, Casualty, Death in Paradise, Doctor Foster, Doctor Who, EastEnders, Match of the Day, Miranda, Mrs. Brown’s Boys, Poldark, Sherlock, Silent Witness, Strictly Come Dancing, The Apprentice, The Graham Norton Show, Top Gear, Waking the Dead, The Missing.
