BBC-backed Radioplayer comes to the Windows Phone Store

While the BBC is not known for their love of Windows Phone, it seems they are working to bring more of their apps to the OS.

The Official UK Radioplayer app, which features all BBC services, and hundreds more great British radio stations, has recently slipped into the Windows Phone store.

The app features live streams of radio, and also allows users to browse BBC’s catch-up programmes and podcasts collection, including hundreds of shows from the BBC iPlayer.

UK Radioplayer Ltd is a not-for-profit company backed by the BBC, and are also partnered with Absolute Radio (who run Absolute Radio 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s and Classic Rock), Global Radio (owners of stations like Heart, Capital, Gold, LBC, XFM, Chill, Choice and Classic FM), and the people from Smooth Radio and Real Radio.

imageOther stations in Radioplayer include talkSPORT, Kiss, Kisstory, Magic, Kerrang, Planet Rock, Jazz FM, Fun Kids, Ministry of Sound, Free radio, Gaydio, Radio Caroline, Radio Jackie, and TeamRock. The app even includes community and student stations. Individual stations can be pinned to the start screen.

The free app, which appears to be restricted to UK residents,  can be found in the Windows Phone Store here.
