BBC iPlayer sees daytime peak for radio

Stats from the BBC’s iPlayer show peak radio listening is during daytime hours at 12pm, rather than the traditional breakfast slot on FM.

And most requests are to listen to live radio rather than catch-up programmes, unlike television where around only 1 in 8 requests for live TV.

Top radio programmes requested during the month of October included Radio 4’s News Quiz, Fearne Cotton and The Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw on Radio 1.

Live sport also did well, with Radio 5 Live’s coverage of Poland v England football and the Indian Grand Prix, as well as a sports documentary Sport Peddlers – Cycling’s Dirty Truth.

The service saw a record high number of requests in October with 213 million request for TV and radio programmes – breaking 200 million in a month for the first time. Mobiles and tablets now contribute nearly a quarter (23%) of all requests, and requests from connected TV devices now make up 20%, as iPlayer gains traction on newer platforms.

    It makes sense midday online listening is higher than breakfast. During the day people are in their offices. At breakfast more people in total may be listening but they are in their cars or kitchen so using a FM/DAB etc.

      You have to get Sky to add on-demand to your package. Note that iPlayer on the Sky box is TV only. No radio.
