Nokia N96 to come with BBC iPlayer app Nokia has announced that users of the N96 phone will be the first with the ability to run a mobile version of the BBC iPlayer on their phones.
Starting October 1st, the application will be available to download through the BBC website and will also come pre-loaded on newer N96 handsets.

For those unfamiliar, the iPlayer allows users to download and stream a wide selection of BBC TV and radio programs from the last week.

Making the news better, Nokia added that the service would work via Wi-Fi and 3G and that it would be free to use.

Erik Huggers, BBC Director of Future Media and Technology, added, "over the past eight months we have worked tirelessly to ensure BBC iPlayer is available on as many platforms as possible, from the PC and TV to games consoles and mobiles."

"This partnership is critical to ensuring we continue to reach out to audiences wherever they are and allow them to catch-up on their favourite BBC programmes.
