International BBC iPlayer to cost around £6 a month

BBC director general Mark Thompson has revealed that the international version of the iPlayer will cost a snip under $10 (£6.14) when it is released this year. Although Thompson has repeatedly told the media that the iPlayer will soon be available outside of the UK, his latest speech at the FT Digital Media & Broadcasting conference in London is the first that he has talked price.
