Listen Again arrives at Xfm

GCap Media are launching an online Listen Again service for Xfm, whilst talks continue between RadioCentre and record companies in the hope of securing a deal to allow such activity to take place. GCap are hoping to roll out the facility to other stations including Capital Radio and Classic FM.

Whilst the BBC have their own agreement with record companies for re-broadcasting complete programmes online, the latest public deal negotiated between commercial radio industry body RadioCentre and record companies only allows 30 seconds of music (i.e. not talked over) during podcasts.

The new player at allows access to seven days of programmes, including exclusive member-only audio and video content for registered users. All of which allows us to presume that GCap Media are going ahead without the relevant licences, in the hope of a RadioCentre-brokered deal in the near future.

Xfm’s head of online for the network, Nick Peters said, ‘We're really excited about the new Xfm player and what it offers our listeners. Now our listeners can access anything they want from the last seven days, watch exclusive Xfm gigs and listen to our sessions archive all in one place. Xfm has always led the way for content and now we’re committed to leading the way in terms of delivery too’.

GCap’s Head of Group Editorial and Product Development, Ashley Middleton said “The new player is a really exciting product and we will be rolling out the full suite of functionality to all our major brands including Capital Radio and Classic FM in the coming months. I’m very proud of what we’ve achieved and where we see the player going”.
