BBC working on music equivalent of iPlayer 

The BBC is working on a music equivalent of its iPlayer catch-up service, The Daily Telegraph can disclose

The service, dubbed Playlister, will give licence-fee payers free access to hundreds of thousands of music recordings without paying any additional fees.

 

Details of the scheme are still being thrashed out but it is expected to provide a similar service to the likes of Spotify, which allows users to stream music online.

 

The BBC has talked about the idea of making its vast archive of music recordings public in the past, but has always run into trouble clearing the rights.
