BBC iPlayer App for iPad Updated with AirPlay Streaming

The Beeb has updated their global iPad app with support for streaming to an Apple TV via AirPlay. For reasons unknown, the UK version of the app did not receive the same treatment, but it could just be a delay as the update passes through the App Store’s digestive track. The BBC produces a number of amazing programmes, including Top Gear, Doctor Who, and the wonderful Top Gear, all of which are better enjoyed on a full sized telly. It would be great if Apple allowed 3rd party apps on the ATV to cut out the middleman, but you could always pull a MacGyver and jailbreak it, install XBMC, then download the iPlayer plug-in.
