BBC Launches iPlayer App For iPhone

The BBC has finally launched a dedicated iPhone and iPod touch app for its hugely popular catch-up TV service, iPlayer.

The state broadcaster already has apps for the iPad and Android devices as well as, of course, the web portal which could already be used on the iPhone but the new app will allow for streaming over 3G as well as Wi-Fi, a facility previously unavailable.

There is also the added functionality of AirPlay, meaning you can stream the content to your Apple TV. The app is compabitble with the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S as well as the iPod touch running iOS 4.3 or above.
The app will let you watch live television as well as catch-up on content from the previous seven days from all BBC channels – including the ever popular BBC Parliament.

BBC iPlayer iPhone app

“The BBC iPlayer app for the iPhone and iPod touch puts all of the BBC’s national television channels and radio networks in your pocket. You can now watch live television channels and listen to live radio stations wherever you are,” blogged the BBC’s David Madden.

As well as iPhone and iPod touch owners getting the 3G and AirPlay functionality, iPad owners will also notice that their app has been updated to add these features. Android users however, will have to wait until the new year to get 3G streaming.

Those wishing to continue using the mobile version of the BBC website will also soon be able to stream TV shows over 3G – but only for selected devices.
