Any plans to add BBC iPlayer live channel stream links to the directory?

Currently all of the BBC branded channels and S4C are streamed live through iPlayer.

All are added.

Thanks James.

Just wondering with regards to BBC One and BBC Two for Scotland, Wales and NI which are streamed live if they're worth adding?

In a recent blog post about adding live streams to connected tv, I asked if the English regions of BBC One would be added and they said later in the year. Food for thought.

Yep. We should list those.

However, I note that the URL remains http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/live/bbcone irrespective of what Nations version of BBC One you're watching. So, currently, we can't...

I see what you mean as they have at the end of the url "?area=scotland" instead of a different address.

Go to the iPlayer front page, then click on Categories. To the right you'll a column with the nations. Click on Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales and a page will show a list of regional programmes and the live stream link as shown here

Cheers for this, Martin.

https://media.info/television/channels/bbc-one/watch now has the regions in there. Technology, eh?

The same also works for BBC Two by adding ?Wales, ?Scotland and ?northern_ireland to the url.
