BBC iPlayer Officially Coming to Windows Phone SoonMarch 5, 2013 1 Comment
BBC iPlayer is officially coming to Windows Phone as BBC has signed a deal with Microsoft. In the ‘near future’, an app will be released on the Windows Phone store that acts as a shortcut to a mobile site that works with the OS.
Today I can let you know that we have signed a deal with Microsoft that will enable us to bring BBC iPlayer to the Windows phone platform.
We will be releasing a shortcut to BBC iPlayer in the near future which will be available in the Windows Phone Store, enabling the BBC iPlayer website to work on Windows Phone 7.5 and 8 via a live tile.
This shortcut will wrap the BBC iPlayer mobile website together with our media player. Hopefully these and other developments will help to expand our online reach further. Our latest figures show that over 650 different device types can access BBC iPlayer.
We will have more info as soon as it becomes available
