Can I watch programmes over 3G or 4G?

Yes, you can play TV and radio programmes over a 3G or 4G network, as well as over Wi-Fi.

BBC iPlayer is a free service, but remember your mobile operator may charge for the data you use on their network. If you’re unsure how much 3G/4G data costs or what your data allowance is, please contact your mobile network operator.

An hour-long TV programme will use 225 MB of data.
