BBC last chance mobile notificationsThe BBC has introduced new mobile notifications for its iPlayer app to let users know when programmes are about to be taken off the broadcaster’s video streaming platform.

The ‘last chance’ mobile notifications alert users on their mobile or tablet devices when their downloaded programmes only have a few days left watch them.

“Downloads are a great way to watch on the move, when commuting, or while you’re abroad, but it can be very frustrating if you forget that a download is about to expire and only realise once it’s too late,” said Dan Taylor-Watt, head of BBC iPlayer.

“We’re reinventing BBC iPlayer for a new generation, with more personalised features, more box sets and UHD HDR content. We hope these new ‘last chance’ notifications will add to this, improving people’s experience of using the app and help to ensure that no-one misses out on watching their favourite BBC shows.”
