The BBC has updated its iPlayer apps for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, adding subtitles and a new curated home screen.
The update follows the recent revamp of iPlayer on connected TVs and a new BBC iPlayer interface on Sky last week.
The new home, category and channel pages include the BBC’s new collections feature which allows programmes to be grouped together based on a series or theme.
Dan Taylor, Head of BBC iPlayer, says: “This update brings the best-ever BBC iPlayer experience to our hugely successful mobile and tablet apps, making the huge breadth of what the BBC offers – from Happy Valley to Match Of The Day, from The Trip to In The Night Garden – easier to find and putting the discovery of new favourites that you didn’t know about at the heart of the iPlayer experience.
“The BBC iPlayer mobile and tablet apps let you to take this experience with you wherever you go, with downloads enabling offline viewing – now with the added benefit of subtitles.”
