BBC Radio gets iPlayer treatment

The beta version of the new-look BBC iPlayer has been released today, and now fully integrates radio and television in one interface.

The extra good news is that the BBC has confirmed audio on demand and streaming will become available – meaning it is only a matter of time before live BBC Radio stations are available to mobile users such as those with Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch.

The quality of the radio programmes will see an improvement, and a new sleek pop-up radio console will offer additional features such as the More Like This widget and, in time, will grow to provide a personalised radio station.

Erik Huggers, the BBC's Group Controller for Future Media and Technology, says: "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."
