BBC shows arrive on iTunes

So you forgot to Sky+ Ashes To Ashes on BBC One, were otherwise engaged during the repeat on BBC Four, then missed the seven-day catch up on iPlayer.

So you forgot to Sky+ Ashes To Ashes on BBC One, were otherwise engaged during the repeat on BBC Four, then missed the seven-day catch up on iPlayer. Just how disorganised are you? Never mind. If you have missed everything else, you can still get your fill of 1981 on the Apple iTunes Store.

From today, fresh episodes will be in store seven days after they go out – which happens to be the precise moment they come off iPlayer.

Sadly you'll have to pay for the privilege of watching these ones (£1.89 an episode, delivered in 640x480 standard def), but unlike iPlayer you'll be able to hang on to the episodes for as long as you like, and even transfer them to Apple TV, iPod or iPhone. Hurrah!

Other progs include Life On Mars, The Mighty Boosh, Robin Hood and Little Britain, alongside existing offerings from the likes of Disney, MTV Networks, Nickelodeon and Warner Bros.
