BBC Local Radio programmes get 30 days on iPlayer
Programmes available on BBC iPlayer made by local radio stations will be available for 30 days from this weekend.
The change happens at 6am this Saturday, when content will move from the current seven day catch-up window to a month.
The change brings the local radio network in line with regional and national radio stations which changed to 30 days in October, along with television programmes.
Ralph Rivera, Director of Future Media, BBC, said: “There is a huge demand to make programmes available for longer on BBC iPlayer – as we continue to see people search for their favourite programmes after the seven day catch-up window. Whether it’s on the bus on their mobile – or on their tablet in bed at night, I’m really pleased that we’re able to give our audiences longer to watch and listen than ever before.”
