Windows Phone 8 users patiently waiting for the arrival of the BBC iPlayer application on to their devices, will be pleased to learn that the Windows Phone 8 iPlayer app is now available to download from the Windows Phone Store for free.
Once installed the Windows Phone 8 BBC iPlayer app allows you to watch and listen to BBC TV & radio programmes from the last 7 days, and is available over Wi-Fi and 3G.
However is you are running Windows Phone 7.5 you might not be so happy, the BBC explains:
“Following our previous blog post some of you will be wondering what about Windows Phone 7.5? Over the last few months we have been working with Microsoft to launch iPlayer on both Windows Phone 8 and 7.5.
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. This led to the joint decision not to make BBC iPlayer available on Windows Phone 7.5.”
