BBC offers more iPhone options

BBC radio programmes can now be accessed on-demand through the iPhone and iPod Touch. And whilst the service is best used with a Wi-Fi signal, the player still works with a 3G connection, albeit intermittently.

"From today, you'll be able to listen to BBC radio programmes on demand on an iPhone or iPod Touch for up to seven days after broadcast," the BBC's Mark Friend, controller of Multi-platform and Interactive, Audio & Music Interactive [link=]said[/link].

Friend added that the availability of BBC radio shows on-demand to iPhone and iPod Touch users is thanks to the organisation’s “future media teams,” who’ve adapted audio formats to suit the Apple devices.

It is hoped the next step will be the ability to stream live BBC radio stations via the Apple device. Only Bauer's Kiss and a handful of GCap stations currently offer a stream suitable for the iPhone in the UK.

Also, from October 1st, the BBC iPlayer [link=]goes live[/link] on the new Nokia N96 phone.
