    That's the only BBC I knew of. Thanks.

    So we can watch BBC on our Droid? This must cost money.

    It could just be a news app. I don't know. Having BBC TV would be nice though.

    Ya looks like focus on news and sports, but it does seems to say they will support live video streaming, so it could just be the beginning of something bigger.

    The difference is that this is an authorized app directly FROM one of the largest news organizations in the world.

    Nice to see more big companies jumping in.
