In last year’s preview we looked foreword to the release of the new Radioplayer, which has now been formally launched.

Radioplayer, backed by the BBC and commercial radio stations including Global Radio, GMG Radio, Absolute Radio and RadioCentre, was launched at the beginning of May and has already recorded 5.7 million listeners. Radioplayer is an online audio aggregator that gives access to live, on demand and podcast radio from over two hundred stations across the UK. It is hoped that all 400 Ofcom-licensed UK radio stations will join the platform within a year.

Currently, Radioplayer is optimised for desktop computers, laptops etc, but versions for mobiles, tablets and televisions are being considered. Programmes are searchable by station, location, title, presenter and subject.
