Anyone managed to get BBC content working on an iPad? I looked at one yesterday and the BBC content kept throwing up these errors:

The Operation Could Not Be completed
Content doesn't seem to be work be working. Please try again later

I took my netbook along and it worked fine on that. Google didn't help much, did the usual clear browser cache/cookies, etc. Installed Chome thinking it may be an issue with Safari but same problem. :(

Could it be that some BBC content is region locked
ie BBC try to block NZ from viewing some content

Played back OK on my netbook through their global mode Slingshot connection though. Turned off region info on the iPad as well. Thinking it's some annoying iPad issue. When I turned off global mode I got the region error message. TVNZ on demand plays fine too with Global Mode on.

I'll have to take another look, I was getting frustrated after an hour with no luck. I was going through Safari and tried a couple of random shows from http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer. Don't have an ipad myself.

This seemed to sort itself out with an ios update.

Urm... why are you guys talking i**** in a usually normal PC forum? Hmm

I don't mean to say that "i" should be verboten, per se, but c'mon, let's let proper operating systems be the appropriate discussion.

You seem to be stuck somewhere in the end of last century, Greg ;).
