    Whether Windows Phone 8 will support BBC iPlayer? How much will the app cost and will there be live telecast of News through the app?

    I am planning to buy a good Windows Phone 8 pretty soon but before that I want to know if it will support the BBC iPlayer? I just want to know this because I am a journalist and it will be highly helpful if it will work. Can you tell me how much will the app cost and will there be live telecast support of News through the app?

    Hi friend,
    Till now BBC i player has not yet launched in Windows phone 7 OS
    Main issue is Windows phone 7 OS lack the support of HTTP live streaming and BBC i player needs it
    Now Microsoft is being trying to over come this problem in Windows phone 8 OS
    to know weather we will be able to run the app we should wait for OS to be launched
    So OS launch is on 26th October so as Microsoft stated we have the optimistic solution may arrive for that problem so we have to wait for the launch of OS
    REGARDS...........

    dear friend,

    Sorry to say that BBC iPlayer doesn't support in windows phones.

    Because windows phone doesn't support any kind of flash player.

    BBC iPlayer required flash player to stream HTML 5 videos.

    Also if you want to run this software in your phone, it'll slow down your mobile.

    So I'll suggest you to buy Android or iPhone if you want to run BBC iPlayer.

    Otherwise you can buy windows 8 phone.
