Nokia owners can tune into BBC World Service

-

Nokia handset owners can now receive BBC World Service as part of the Internet radio application.

The service will allow users to listen to – BBC World Service as well as BBC World Service’s 24-hour rolling news. Also on offer is the BBC’s Arabic news.

Karl Kathuria, head of digital delivery for the BBC World Service, said that making the channels available was part of the network’s aim to grow its market share using a multi-platform strategy.

He said: “For delivery over the Internet Radio platform, we are providing an MP3-format stream that can be picked up via Wi-Fi or through a mobile data connection, mirroring our online offer in these languages.

“This is the first time we’ve made our live 24-hour audio streams available specifically for a mobile platform, as part of our commitment to a multi-format strategy.”

The BBC stations can be downloaded for free via Nokia’s well regarded Internet Radio application at nokia.com/internetradio.

Channels will come pre-loaded in many of Nokia’s S60 3rd edition devices.
