Due to a landmark content deal between Nokia, and BBC Worldwide, N96 users will be able to download the first seasons of Walking With Dinosaurs, Little Britain, The Catherine Tate Show or Yes Minister.
The content must first be downloaded to a PC and synched to the Nokia via Windows Media Player, and will be DRM protected.
The N96 will be available from September 26 with an RRP of $1,349. It features a 2.8in screen and built-in 3D stereo speakers.
The BBC has made similar deals with Nokia for several South East Asian markets, including Singapore and Malaysia.
