Since the BBC iPlayer was launched three years ago the service has gone from strength to strength.
Not content with offering the iPlayer on everything from smartphones to Internet-connected TVs, the BBC now has geographic expansion in its sights.
Speaking at the Edinburgh International Television Festival, BBC Director-General Mark Thompson revealed plans for an international rollout of the iPlayer within the year.
The BBC is calling the rollout a commercial venture but whether the service will be ad supported or offered on a subscription basis is not yet clear.
In a separate piece of iPlayer news, Sony has announced the addition of an iPlayer widget to its Vaio laptops, making it quicker and easier to access live and on-demand content.
