FOIA – Internal Review – IR2010026

Posted by on Monday, 6 September, 2010
Received the attached from the BBC foi team today(they left it right to the limit and required a reminder, maybe they thought I’d forget ;))
It is interesting that the emails are originally talking about how the BBC could help out the developer “chuck him some cash” but that the eventual step was to force beebplayer to be shut down. 
I think that there is very little chance of getting the information about how the decision to shut down beebplayer was made but I still think the beeb have screwed up. Why not make the streams available and let the community build apps for different platforms?

Beebplayer FOI request

I was intrigued to see that the beebplayer application had been removed from the android marketplace and submitted an FOI request to discover more. The response back from them was not especially helpful and I have responded asking for further information. I find it very annoying that the beebplayer app was removed – it is the one I use the most on my HTC hero. I will probably not be able to upgrade my phone to 2.2 ¬†and therefore will not be able to use the services I have paid for in the license fee ūüôĀ There is an interesting thread here¬†about the removal of the beebplayer from the marketplace.
