Date set for Radioplayer launch

The UK Radioplayer will finally launch at the end of this month, bringing together commercial and BBC radio stations online in a joint console for the first time.

The service, which will only list Ofcom regulated stations, will go live on Thursday March 31st but will only include around 150 stations.

Radio stations in the UK will need to pay a fee to be included, ranging from £90 per year for a small station such as Radio Scilly, to £23,000 per year for larger stations such as Classic FM.

Radioplayer aims to add more stations within weeks of launch, along with more podcasts and on-demand programmes. A search facility will enable listeners to find stations by music, location and format.

Not-for-profit company UK Radioplayer Ltd has been managing the project since it was first announced two years ago, with support from founder partners Global Radio, GMG Radio, Absolute Radio, RadioCentre and the BBC.

The service is only designed to work on devices with Flash installed, so listening on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch is not possible.
