TUAW reports that the BBC has just updated its iOS iPlayer app with Retina display support for the iPad, as well as the usual bug fixes, plus some general improvements to the app, including improved video performance on playback, and some “general tidying, so you’ll notice even smoother performance,†apparently. More Voice Over controls have also been added to improve accessibility. Back in July the app broke the 1 million downloads milestone, and that’s without it even being available in the US yet. And it’s bad news on that front for US iPad and iPhone owners who have been patiently waiting to get the app, I’m afraid, as TechRadar reports that the BBC’s plans to make the player available in the US have so far been stymied by US cable companies, which, according to the report, have allegedly threatened that they will drop BBC America if the iPlayer gets released in the US.

Do these upgrades also apply to the international version of BBC iPlayer?

If not can always set up a UK VPN connection and download. This is how I watch UK TV in Turkey.
