SBS launches Your Language app
Thursday 03 Nov 2011
SBS has launched its Your Language app, allowing users to livestream and replay radio programmes in more than 60 languages.
The free app can be accessed on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, and features reminders, schedule information and interactive features such as voting and audience feedback via text, e-mail or phone.
“The Your Language app extends the reach of the more than 60 SBS radio language programmes with listeners now able to access their favourite programmes on analogue and digital radio, online and now on their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch at a time that suits the listener,” SBS Managing Director Michael Ebeid said.
“Coupled with our pilot Chinese language Virtual Community Centre and SBS Television’s Mandarin News Australia and the recently launched Pop Asia TV, these services are demonstrating the potential SBS has to revolutionise in-language services for Australia’s culturally and linguistically diverse communities.”
SBS Audio and Language Content Director Dirk Anthony said SBS offered more than traditional radio services.
“We provide high quality content in over 60 languages on multiple platforms – on air, online, on TV with Mandarin News Australia and via digital TV, and now, on mobile,” he said.
The Your Language app is available from Apple’s App Store.
