BBC World News Live app
The BBC and Livestation have introduced a new app for the iPhone and iPod touch, BBC World News Live. Users are able to stream the BBC's 24-hour TV news feed, using either a 3G or a Wi-Fi connection. Low- and high-quality versions of the feed can be selected, though only the former is available over 3G.
Also provided in the app is access to the BBC's mobile website, which lists text stories under topical and regional categories. The software can currently only be downloaded in a little over a dozen countries, however; these include Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. World News Live is an €8 download from the App Store.
