Radioplayer has launched in the UK
The Radioplayer service brings BBC and commercial radio stations together in one place

Radioplayer has launched today in the UK, aiming to be a new hub for radio stations in the UK.

Delivering BBC, commercial and local stations, Radioplayer will combine live radio and on-demand content in one place.

A not-for-profit company founded by the BBC, Global Radio, Guardian Media Group, Absolute Radio and RadioCentre, Radioplayer has been dubbed both the Freeview and iPlayer of radio.

The online hub will offer 150 radio stations, with another 150 local and community stations poised to join the service in the coming weeks.

More after the break

The service has a search option for finding live and on-demand broadcasts. Initially it will only work on devices that are capable of running Adobe's Flash platform.

A version capable of running on Apple devices is expected to follow shortly.

Head to the Radioplayer website for more information and to see the service in action.
