Just noticed this,  not that I have downloaded programs on PC for a while.

It will not be possible to download on the web on these devices from 11 March and the app will be closed on 8 April,  can still stream.  Mobile and Tablet Downloads are unaffected but decision taken due to low number of users using the service on these devices.  https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/help/questions/recent-changes-to-iplayer/ipd-closure 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

Interesting
Though like you, I have not downloaded any for some time
With the Z Fold 5, I can stream on the go.
With Internet connections being so reliable in places, the only need I have to download now is if I travel abroad. Especially those long flights

I still download some music for general use mind you as well as using streaming services. The physical value of sales though is now a lot higher that downloads with streams far ahead. https://www.musicweek.com/labels/read/era-cd-sales-increase-for-the-first-time-in-20-years/
