BBC World News launches first ever program app
The BBC Horizons series is breaking new ground by being available as an app on iOS and Android mobile devices.
The program, focusing on the latest technologies and innovations, is now in its fourth year. The app, as well as offering extended interviews and video diaries, will provides users with a tailored experience such as easy-to-find content based on location and theme, and the ability to ‘favourite’ clips from all four series.
“With the BBC World News series about how science and technologies are transforming businesses and the way we live entering its fourth season, it seemed like the perfect occasion to bring all of our Horizons content together in an app,” commented Richard Pattinson, Commissioning Editor, bbc.com. “Our audience can enjoy video, blogs and infographics from the programs wherever they are.”
