The BBC has finally issued an update to its free iPlayer app for the iPad that allows users to stream content to their Apple TV for viewing on their television.

The catch-up app allows users to watch BBC shows on-demand and has grown in popularity since becoming available on the App Store earlier this year. Those who can access the service for free in the U.K., in addition to subscribers in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, The Republic of Ireland, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland, can now stream BBC shows on their television with version 1.2.5 of the global iPlayer app.

The BBC has promised that the iPlayer app is coming to other territories, including America, but is yet to give a launch date.

In addition to the latest version of the iPlayer app, you’ll also need to have iOS 5 installed to take advantage of AirPlay streaming.

Have you tried AirPlay streaming with BBC iPlayer yet?

UPDATE: It appears that only the BBC iPlayer global app supports AirPlay streaming for the time being, so U.K. users will have to hold on a little while.
