Not sure if people are aware of this (until recently, I wasn't), but a new EU directive on AV media takes effect on December 19th this year, which could have a big impact on the availability of video content from other countries. A key component is it becomes illegal to deny access to audio/visual media in other EU states. I've learned of one iPhone app (TVCatchup) which will, after Dec. 19, work in any EU nation. I reckon the BBC iPlayer will do likewise; albeit overseas users may have to pay a subscription to compensate for not paying a license fee. Good news!
