BBC iPlayer


Features include:

- Watch live TV
- Watch over Wi-Fi and cellular networks
- Download TV programmes to watch later (on devices running Android OS Ice Cream Sandwich and above)

**
We know some Android KitKat users are having issues playing downloaded programmes. We're treating these issues very seriously and have raised them with Google who, so far, haven't been able to provide a fix. We're continuing to work with Google on this and hope the issues will be fixed soon.

- Cast content to your TV using Chromecast

We have developed the BBC Media Player app to improve video streaming playback on Android devices. You will need to install this separately from the Google Play marketplace.

To make installation of the BBC Media Player as easy as possible, BBC iPlayer will prompt you to install it when you first play a streamed programme.

The BBC iPlayer app uses standard Android app permissions that are defined by the Google Android platform. The permissions the BBC iPlayer Android app asks to use are:

Read phone status and identity – allows us to securely link downloads to your device, so they cannot be copied to another.

Modify or delete the contents of your USB storage – allows the app to save images, metadata and downloads.

Full network access- allows the app to access the internet.

View network connections - Allows the app to access details about network connectivity i.e. whether the device is on Wi-Fi or 3G/4G.

Prevent phone from sleeping – enables downloads to be performed in the background.

Test access to protected storage – allows the app to check if there is space on your device to download programmes.

What did you say dear? The BBC iPlayer app is good BUT the search is terrible. I searched for a show I know was on iPlayer and it wasn't in the results. It's like talking to an elderly deaf person ..."you wanted what dear? The news was it" .... No horizon ..."oh Sherlock" .... No nevermind I will navigate the random menus in hope I stumble accross it (all shows alphabetical order would do)

Radio links to a barely functioning webpage Every other update seems to either make or break this app. Not having a dedicated radio app is awful. Release one asap, beeb!
