BBC Radio 1 channel for iPlayer

BBC Radio 1, already the biggest radio station online, is set to start a special video channel on the BBC iPlayer, following in part the large success of their YouTube channel, where Gerg James’ Miley Cyrus spoof has enjoyed almost three million views so far.

The channel will include performances and interviews, and will be accessible via TV, patop, smartphone or tablet.

“I’m very excited about transforming Radio 1 from being just a radio station into being a full audio-visual channel,” says Ben Cooper, Controller of BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra. “Radio 1 has always pioneered innovative ideas and led the way in engaging with young people and this is another huge step in cementing that reputation.”
