BBC links to online music services

The BBC is to team up with leading online music services to allow them to compile playlists of tracks they have heard on TV or radio to save for later listening.

Spotify, Deezer and YouTube have signed up to work on the service Playlister, which the corporation said would "transform" the audiences' relationship with music.

It means they can store up songs featured on BBC Two's Later With Jools Holland, tracks playing in the cafe in EastEnders, a tune which accompanies a performance on Strictly Come Dancing or other tracks to which they have been introduced through programmes. They would then listen to the playlist via the partner service, or can listen to recommendations from DJs or particular TV shows.

The BBC said that after music has been broadcast "it can be difficult for audiences to find the music they hear on the BBC again".

But it said Playlister - the first service of its kind - "changes that for ever" and will allow people to listen back to the tunes in full.

It will launch shortly on PCs and mobile browsers, with further partner companies expected to sign up, and will eventually integrate with the iPlayer Radio app.

BBC director-general Tony Hall said: "We have a proud musical heritage that dates back to the very beginning of the BBC's history, and over the years we have found many new ways of bringing fantastic music to our viewers and listeners.

"Working with partners such as Spotify, YouTube and Deezer, we will once again transform our audiences' relationship with music and the BBC."

Spotify's vice president for Europe, Chris Maples, said "You can be the first to hear and follow playlists from your favourite DJs, radio stations and TV programmes, and explore a world of hand-picked music content from across the BBC."
