The version of gvSIG that I have on my Android tablet will load OS OpenSpace layers and I wonder whether or not it would be possible for QGIS desktop to do the same? And if so, how? I have my own OpenSpace API key.
This appears to be the (long) line in gvSIG's 'layers.txt' file that does the job of fetching the layers:
