If you've been longing for a way to purchase and download classic TV shows from years ago directly from the BBC, the corporation has finally answered your calls. The BBC Store is a new online shop that enables you to buy a variety of shows and download them for enjoyment, joining iPlayer which simply offers a way to catch-up with your favorite shows from the last 30 days.
Around 7,000 hours worth of television is available on the store, which include Dad's Army, Doctor Who, Fawlty Towers and even Morecambe & Wise. Initially launching offline apps on Windows and Mac, the BBC is also working on dedicated BBC Store apps for both Android and iOS. Shows purchased on the store will show up under "My Programmes" on the iPlayer website. Unfortunately, for the time being, it seems that you're currently unable to stream said purchased content through official iPlayer apps.
Pricing for individual episodes kicks off at £1.89, while the average for a six-part series runs at six-part series is £7.99. If you're wanting to enjoy classics on your TV, you'll need to hold off for now since it's only available through web browsers, but at least we're seeing a new way for everyone to consume content from the broadcaster. So be sure to check out the new BBC Store (linked below).
