Get better quality video using cellular data with latest BBC iPlayer update

For UK folks, the BBC iPlayer app is a must have if you like watching TV on the go. Perhaps the biggest source of frustration, though, has always been the somewhat lacklustre video quality should you be watching over a cellular connection, be that 3G or LTE. Fortunately, the BBC has taken action and is pushing an update into the App Store that promises to remedy the issue.

Providing your cellular connection will support it, the BBC now promises that you will enjoy the same video playback quality that you would otherwise enjoy over WiFi. Bold claims, for sure. Beyond this, there's a bunch of stability improvements thrown in as well as a link to download their iPlayer Radio app.

Grab it now from the App Store and let us know if you're seeing any marked improvement in that video quality.
