Until now, people could only stream television shows to their smartphones and tablet computers – a process which always required an internet connection.
However, an update for the on-demand service on Tuesday (September 4th) has enabled users to download programmes to their mobile device.
As such, people will be able to catch up on their beloved television programme while travelling to or from their workplace or while relaxing beside a pool when taking a holiday.
"With mobile downloads, you can now load up your mobile phone or tablet with hours and hours of BBC programmes, then watch them on the road, on the tube, on a plane, without worrying about having an internet connection or running up a mobile data bill," Daniel Danker, the BBC's general manager of on-demand programs, pointed out to The Guardian.
The only catch about the new service is that users have up to 30 days to watch a programme after downloading it to a mobile device.
