BBC iPlayer is available on Windows Phone 8 devices. The free streaming app can be downloaded from the Window Phone Store from today (15th May).
The BBC iPlayer app allows users to stream weekly on-demand TV and radio content over WiFi and 3G from Windows handsets.
However, despite plans to make the BBC iPlayer app available for Windows Phone 7.5, platform limitations have led to its cancellation.
“Unfortunately, platform limitations with Windows Phone 7.5 have meant we’ve been unable to provide the same quality playback experience as on Windows Phone 8,” explained the BBC’s Dave Price.
“This led to the joint decision not to make BBC iPlayer available on Windows Phone 7.5.
“Although this is disappointing, Windows Phone 8 currently make up the majority of all Windows Phones on the market and this number is expected to grow.
“I therefore hope more of you will get to enjoy BBC programmes on the go with iPlayer with Windows Phone 8 devices.”
