BBC upgrades online listening

The BBC has introduced Flash-based streams for its iPlayer service as well as live and on demand radio on all their national stations, doubling the bitrates for most streams.

The results are enhanced audio quality and a wider dynamic level. The BBC are also introducing Flash-based streaming outside of the UK. Tailoring the feed, as the Corporation puts it, for listening at your desk or in your living room, therefore optimizing the output for online listening.

Live streams for BBC Radio 1,2,3 and 4 are also now available in Windows Media format for an overseas audience – a first.

And finally, the BBC World Service will be coming to the BBC iPlayer in the upgraded quality in the next few weeks, with national and local radio streams to be upgraded by the end of the summer.
