Mon 26th Jul 2010 | Television & Broadcasting
It's been reported that the BBC has finally been given the go-ahead by the BBC Trust to launch smartphone apps - meaning it can extend its reach of its news and sport service.
The BBC’s sport coverage can now be made available on smartphones – with Radio 5 Live and live sport coverage to be made available, a decision welcomed by the broadcasting corperation.
However, the Newspaper Publishers Association (NPA) had been keen that the decision did’t go through as papers look to explore the growth area and charge for apps.
The announcement was followed by the launched of the BBC's news application for the iPhone and iPad.
The BBC said it intends to launch the application later in the year and will include football and F1 content.
