The BBC has confirmed that its radio programmes can now be accessed on-demand through the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Radio fans can listen to radio shows up to seven days after they were broadcast. Shows come in MP3 format and are compressed to 128kb/s.

Mark Friend of the BBC said in offcial blog that punters must download the shows through iPlayer and over a Wi-Fi connection, but there was no specific mention made to the iPhone 3G.

Friend added that the availability of BBC radio shows on-demand to iPhone and iPod Touch users is thanks to the organisation’s “future media teams,” who’ve adapted audio formats to suit the Apple devices.

It was also mentioned that the BBC plans to start rolling out radio on-demand to other portable devices soon, but exactly which devices hasn't been mentioned.
