David Attenborough’s Blue Planet II was aired on UK Tv last night and is now also available in the UK iTunes store.

The first episode “One Ocean” was shown last night and is now available to download. Each week as a new episode is aired on BBC 1 on a Sunday evening GMT, it will then be made available the following day in the UK store.

Want to set up your own UK iTunes account to download it?

Then here’s how to do it!! A UK Apple ID can be set up from any country really easily from an iPad or iPhone, following the steps below:

  • From the home screen on the iPhone or iPad select “App store”.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and sign out of an existing iTunes account.
  • Choose any “FREE” App and select “Get”.
  • In the pop up box choose “Create Apple ID”.
  • Follow the set up process to add an email address (this will be the new Apple ID) and password and change the country using the drop down box to “United Kingdom”.
  • Click agree to terms and conditions and select Next.
  • Select “None” under billing details and fill in name, address, phone number (A Google search can help with this) and head to the next page.
  • Apple will send a verification code to the email address provided.
  • Check for the email and confirm the code where requested on the iPad or iPhone.

Once the UK Apple ID has been set up it can be signed into from any country and “Blue Planet II” can be searched for in the iTunes store and downloaded.

The cost?

The initial set up of the UK iTunes account using the steps above is completely free. However, the cost of Blue Planet II in the iTunes store is currently £10.99 for an SD download or £14.99 for an HD version download. So to enable a download purchase there will need to be this much credit in the account.

Credit can be added to the account using UK iTunes codes. The link will divert you to our website where you then choose the amount you require (£10,£15,£25, £50 or £100) and make the purchase. After the purchase has successfully processed, the iTunes code will be sent to you via email where you can then redeem the amount of credit into the account. It may also be worth noting that not all credit needs used at once, so if there is any spare credit after the Blue Planet download it can then be used towards another download. This can be from the App store or the iTunes store, for music, movies, books etc. If further credit is required it can also be added into the account at a further date in time.

The UK iTunes store is very popular as along with the US, it is one of the larger stores and has the most download content available, often also releasing content ahead of other stores.
