BBC IPlayer Mobile Software Description

Watch live TV- Catch up on the past 30 days- Watch on Wi-Fi and cellular networks- Download TV programmes to watch later (on devices running Android OS Ice Cream Sandwich and above)- Browse Categories and Channels- Cast content to your TV using Chromecast

We know some Android KitKat users are having issues playing downloaded programmes. We're treating these issues very seriously and have raised them with Google who, so far, haven't been able to provide a fix of KitKat. We're continuing to work with Google on this and hope the issues will be fixed soon.

However, Google have been able to fix the downloads stuttering issue in Android Lollipop (5.0), so be sure to update your Operating System when prompted.

**

We’ve developed the BBC Media Player app to improve video streaming playback on Android devices. You’ll need to install this separately from the Google Play Store.

To make installation of the BBC Media Player as easy as possible, BBC iPlayer will prompt you to install it when you first play a streamed programme.

The BBC iPlayer app uses standard Android app permissions that are defined by the Google Android platform. The permissions the BBC iPlayer Android app asks to use are:

Photos/Media/Files

"Read the contents of your USB storage" & "Modify or delete the contents of your USB storage"This permission is used to store downloaded programmes. The application must be able to write, read and delete these files.

Device ID & Call Information

"Read phone status and identity"This permission is used to read the Android "Device ID". This is an anonymous ID that cannot be used to identify the user and is not used to track the user. It is used by iPlayer's content protection system to ensure that downloaded programmes can only be played on the device that downloaded them. iPlayer does not use this permission to determine the device phone number, whether a call is active, or the remote number in a connected call.

Other permissions (not explicitly mentioned when installing BBC iPlayer, as they are more general to most apps):

"Prevent phone from sleeping"This permission is used by two features: Downloads & Chromecast.While downloading a programme, the application prevents the system from sleeping when the device is locked, so the download can continue. This is only active while a download is in progress.

While "casting" a programme to a compatible receiver like Google's Chromecast, the application stops the system from fully sleeping when the phone is locked. This stops the application losing connection with the receiver so the phone can continue to control playback.

"Full network access"iPlayer needs access to the internet to download programmes, schedules and information about programmes and configuration, and to send usage statistics. "View network connections"This permission lets iPlayer determine whether a network connection is available before accessing the network, and provide better error messages when it can’t retrieve data.

iPlayer also determines what type of network connection is in use (Wi-Fi or Cellular) for the Downloads feature. Downloads are enabled when connected to a Wi-Fi network. On a cellular network, downloads are disabled/paused.

"Test access to protected storage" This allows the app to check if there is space on your device to download programmes.

To give you with the best experience, certain details like your Search History and Favourites may be stored on your device or securely on BBC servers.

To analyse and improve the app, it also uses technologies similar to performance cookies used by the BBC. You can alter your settings for this on your device. For more information about this and privacy, cookies and iPlayer more generally, visit the BBC iPlayer privacy FAQ page at http://iplayerhelp.external.bbc.co.uk/tv/app_privacy, or the BBC’s Privacy & Cookies site at http://www.bbc.co.uk/privacy/
