New BBC iPlayer for children

The BBC has launched a new version of CBBC iPlayer on computers, tablets and mobiles.

The children’s homepages now feature an image-led curated experience and include the brand new collections to showcase key programmes, seasons, events and themes. The BBC have also added live restart to the simulcast streams which means that viewers are now able to rewind through the last two hours of the schedule.

For the first time Children’s iPlayer is also accessible using mobiles and tablets, key devices for this audience, as the website has been developed using responsive design.

The Children’s iPlayer websites are built using the same components and technology as the main version of iPlayer. This approach means that new functionality can be easily shared between the two, improving and enriching the experience for all iPlayer users.
