  1. Interesting, and long wanted. However, at the moment, the universal app apparently isn’t available in regions outside the UK. At least, when I follow your link to the Store entry on my desktop PC (region set to Netherlands), I can’t install it – and a search for “BBC Store” gives no results. If I look at the Store entry on my laptop (region set to the UK), then it is available for installation.

  2. I dug a little deeper, and in the Terms and Conditions it states that the BBC Store is only available to UK residents. This, for a store that is operated by BBC Worldwide. Somewhat oxymoronic.
