BBC to create portable digital radio The British Broadcasting Corporation has announced that it will release a clip-on device for popular mobile MP3 players such as Apple's Ipod that will enable these devices to receive digital radio transmissions.
Plans are still in the early development stages and there has been no official release of when we can expect this device or what the price point will be, but there is some speculation that the product will be aimed at the market leading Ipod teaming up to support this device. No official comment has been made by either Apple or BBC on this relationship, but with Apples domination of the market, it only seems natural.

BBC didn't anounce that "it will release a clip-on device for popular mobile MP3 players such as Apple's Ipod". BBC anounced that it wound like to release an add on for existing portable music players, possibly iPod, but maybe not.

So the propaganda machine plans to introduce its own DAB peripherals.. Fewer people are currently prepared to pay for the 'privilege' of a 'TV license' (paid to the BBC!!) in order to receive TV signals hence the need for this corporation to diversify. However in this sector the BBC has no authority and little respect as far as many of us are concerned.
