BBC offers an international version of the BBC IPlayer app, making the content available to international users, for a monthly charge. Does anyone know if the DV was also added to the international IPlayer? If so, I'd have no problem giving them the 3 or 4 bucks a month they want.

Although it was already possible to access audio described programmes via the BBC iplayer website on safari, this is a far better and less cumbersome experience. Hats off to the BBC once again for another fine job with their attention to detail regarding accessibility

If the descriptive is available in the international version, I would also probably purchase the subscription but would like to know an estimate of what is available first or perhaps have a trial period.
