Editors' Review

BBC iPlayer Radio lets US fans of the British Broadcasting Corporation's radio services listen to live streams of the world's leading radio stations.


Easy to navigate: The BBC iPlayer Radio lets you spin a dial to choose from 16 preset BBC terrestrial and digital stations and see what's on the air. You can add one or more of the nearly four dozen local UK stations to the dial, including Radio London.

Find schedules and categories quickly: Find past shows by station, DJ, or type -- such as dramas or Annie Mac's Live Mixes -- to listen to on demand. The app lets you download podcasts and past programs within 30 days of broadcast to listen offline.

Handy extras: A built-in clock includes an alarm that lets you set a station for the alert, a sleep timer, and a night-mode setting so you can control screen brightness with a slider. Parental controls lets you decide whether kids can listen to programs the BBC has flagged for parental guidance.

World-class radio: The BBC presents unrivaled radio programming, from world news and original plays to popular music and regional content serving individual counties and countries.


Some restricted content: Commentary for some sporting events, such as Premier League football, may not be available due to rights restrictions.

Bottom Line

Through the BBC iPlayer Radio app, Anglophiles and fans of engaging radio can tune in to some of the world's leading radio stations.
