iPhone News: BBC iPlayer now supports iPhone streaming
The BBC has now launched iPlayer for the iPhone which. I know, i know; you’re thinking this isn’t hot news at all…. but it is. It now supports 3G in the UK! This means not only can you read eBooks and listen to songs on your iPhone; you can also stream UK TV shows wherever you are.
It also gives you the option to listen to BBC Radio such as my favourite, Radio 1.
The 3G streaming supports the iPhone 3GS model and up. The BBC has said that quality will depend on signal strength and speed, but that they have worked closely with UK networks to optimise the experience as best they can.
You can download the app from the app store now.
It is believed to be hitting stateside soon, but won’t have all the features as the UK version – finally something we’ve got that is better than theirs.
