BBC Media Player Now Available In The Play Store


Now that Flash is no longer supported on Android devices, media companies of all have had to come up with creative ways of sharing content with the masses. Famed British media company BBC is no different and has launched its BBC Media Player app for Android devices. The app allows BBC fans to steam video and audio at their heart’s content, though BBC is still trying to integrate its main website with the new app, so some features or stories may not be available for hopefully a short time.

The app is available for Froyo 2.2+ devices in the UK, though there are early reports the app is not compatible with some Jelly Bean devices. Hopefully BBC will get those kinks worked out sooner than later.
