As tipped in ALL ACCESS (NET NEWS, 10/3), the BBC has launched a new iPLAYER service and iPHONE app dedicated to radio. METRO U.K. reports that the new radio service will be officially launched on MONDAY, with the app available to download the day after.
The BBC said it will make it easier for music fans to access videos of live performances and find out information about songs playing on any one of its stations. "Now you truly can take BBC radio with you wherever you go," BBC executive DANIEL DANKER said. "BBC iPLAYER Radio is radio for an audience that expects to access our content anywhere. It's also radio for an audience that wants greater choice and control. They want to listen again when they choose, to personalise their listening experience, to share tracks they've discovered with friends.
