    I want to buy a 7 inch tablet mainly to download programmes to watch later. According to this I will be able to on the Nexus 7: BBC iPlayer - Help - Are BBC iPlayer Downloads available for my Android Device?

    Please can an owner of the Nexus 7 confirm that this is the case. Thanks

    I think it depends on where you are. If you are in the UK (a guess by your name), it seems the BBC has an iPlayer available for the devices noted in your link and I would guess you can download from it (or the desktop version) to these devices to watch later. Check the UK Google Play Store.

    If you are not in the UK, the Beeb produces an iPlayer for Canada and, I think, Australia and New Zealand - but not for Android. For the iPhone and iPad only. I've been onto them about this and, while sympathetic, no real plans stated. Pity. It's another reason I have yet to give up entirely on my iPhone (I'm in Canada), but a heck of a thing to watch programming on.
    I note there's some sort of unofficial workaround app in the Canadian Google Store, but it all looks kinda dodgy and hasn't got great reviews - so if you're living outside of the UK and in one of the 'colonies' where the iOS BBC iPlayer is available and really want the service, you might be better served to look at a iPad Mini.

    Thanks for the reply. I was hoping someone, in the UK, with a Nexus 7 would confirm that I would be able to definitely be able to download programmes. My android phone is on this list that the BBC provided but I can't download - so I don't trust this list! I may have to splash out and get the iPad mini.

    Yes, you can download BBC iPlayer but you also need BBC Media Player.

    You can also download BBC Radio Player and ITV Player.
