Ok, but if it does radio, then will it work with the BBC's listen again links? Also, if I want to listen to a streaming premier league footy game from a club's website, will I be able too? -

Hi Jackie.

I'm afraid you are correct, it only does radio stations at the moment.

All the best, Ibrahim.

Hi Andy

I use Tune In all the time.  In fact it's on now as I write, but I'm not
sure you can get TV on it.  If I'm wrong, then I haven't obviously
investigated the program enough, but I was desperate to get in the stations
on radio I enjoy.  I honestly don't think it does TV as well, but someone
please tell me I'm wrong?


Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns

I might be wide of the mark here, but isn't there an app called 'tune in?'
that allows you to create a list of favourite radio/TV stations. If so,
isn't this a kind of work around for grabbing stuff of the Iplayer? Bear in mind, I've not yet even seen an IPlayer of any flavour so far, but have been
researching -

Baring in mind that the BBVC news app was useless to voice over users,
I'm guessing the Iplayer app will take a similar form and probably won't
work.
Let's hope I'm wrong though. I did contact them re inaccessibility of
the news app but received no response.

Regarding the lack of Android app mentioned in this article, there
have already been two excellent and perfectly functioning iPlayer apps
released on the Android market.

However, the BBC forced them to be removed.
Incidentally, I've had to manually scrape the BBC's website and bodge
a link together to help a blind friend get Radio 5 and 5 live
podcasts, because 3 months after being notified, they STILL haven't
fixed their broken podcasts lists. It took me 20 minutes.

Amazing, isn't it? How many £billion do they get? And how much is
squandered on things like the already technically obsolete DAB system?

Grrrr. Rant over!

BBC iPlayer iPhone app imminent

The BBC iPlayer app for iOS devices, including the iPod, iPad and
iPhone, is nearing launch and should be in the App Store for
February.

This is according to PaidContent who have been given the nod by an
unnamed source that Apple users will soon be able to watch the
iPlayer on their portable devices without having to go through the
laborious task of viewing content through a web browser.

It's been a long time coming for the BBC iPlayer app to enter the App
Store.

Announced way back in February 2010, the app was meant to be in place
before 2010 was out but never actually made it to market.

This was because the BBC Trust had to look into whether the iPlayer
app, alongside a dedicated news and sports app, were the right thing
for the BBC to release.

It turns out apps were part of the company's raison d'etre, which
promptly brought on the release of the hugely successful BBC News app
and gave the greenlight for the iPlayer on the App Store.

No Android

Unfortunately there is still no word as to whether Google Android
will get an official iPlayer app.

Considering Erik Huggers is departing at the end of February to
snuggle up next to Will.i.am at Intel, and massive job cuts have been
announced for the web arm of the BBC, it's unlikely we will see an
Android version of the iPlayer anytime soon.
