[BCAB] Watching TV on an I Phone

There's 2 iPlayer apps.  A TV one, which is just called BBC iPlayer, and then one called BBC Radio Player.  The second is just for radio and really easy to use.  I think the first one does both, but also easy.

Hi All, is the BBC Radio App different to the BBC I player app or are they one in the same?
Thanks
Colin

Sorry if this is teaching proverbial granny to suck eggs, but you can also do live radio on the iPlayer Radio app.  Not entirely reliable yet, but not bad.

Thanks Ian and Johny, I didn't realise that if you double tapped on a program in the schedule it would start playing it. It also rather helpfully says 'live'. I'm going out in a bit and I wanted to keep an eye on the Equal marriage debate and now I can.

Have you any idea then Ian how the land lies with the need for a TV licence if watching live telly on the iPhone?  If you don't have a TV at home I'm guessing you still legally require a licence if watching on your phone.  Interesting area

Yusuf, you can definitely watch BBC channels live on the iPlayer as I did last Thursday evening watching parts of my home town being knocked down in Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads.  You can also watch the BBC News Channel buy hitting the live button top left of the home screen.

I'm trying to find an app to watch live TV on my I Phone, I'm only really interested in free to air TV. I've tried catchup TV and couldn't get it to work. Can anyone recommend anything?
Cheers
Yusuf
