What is Radioplayer?
Radioplayer is a non-profit partnership between the BBC and commercial radio. Our aim is to keep radio listening simple, particularly on things which are connected to the internet, like computers, smartphones, and tablets.
Working with designers from the BBC and across the radio industry, we launched our first shared web player for computers in 2011. With simple, consistent controls and a powerful search engine, it quickly became the industry standard. It’s now used by over 400 stations across the UK, and more than 6 million people every month.
In 2012, with smartphone use growing quickly, Radioplayer released a series of apps, first for mobiles and then for tablets. These have continued to develop and grow, remain free to download, and are available for iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets, Kindle Fire and Windows 8 Phone.
More recently, Radioplayer has added hardware devices to its portfolio, with an in-car hybrid radio due for public release later in 2015 and further next-generation radio devices in production.
Beyond the UK, Radioplayer technology is available for international licensing, and has already launched in a number of European territories including Germany, Ireland, Norway and Belgium.
