The BBC today introduced an updated version of the BBC iPlayer, which fully combines radio and TV in one interface.
The BBC iPlayer is an Internet-based on-demand catch-up service for BBC media, and is available on PC, Mac, Linux, Virgin Media, Apple iPhone & iPod touch and Nintendo Wii.
The BBC reports that it has served over 100 million program requests via iPlayer since it launched.
“The next generation of BBC iPlayer allows UK licence fee payers to catch up on their favourite BBC TV and radio programmes in one place – a completely unique on-demand service,” says the BBC’s Erik Huggers. ”Audiences are now able to experience the full range of BBC content – some 250 TV programmes currently available each week as well as all the BBC radio networks – in a new and more accessible way, and all for free.”
