For what it's worth - the streams are *not* global; there are issues to do with transmission rights, particularly for sports or music shows which prevent their distribution outside the UK. That said, *most* radio is distributed globally - though a non-UK user doesn't get *quite* the same stream as the UK listener in some cases. Very little TV is available outside the UK.

(I spent a year working behind the scenes on the iplayer launch last year).
