Future Media

The future of connected and mobile TV is in your hands. The world is watching.

Our ambition is to create the most valued open digital media services in the world. We want to transform the BBC for an interactive, on-demand future and find new ways of reaching audiences wherever they are.

BBC Future Media is the driving force behind the BBC’s digital media proposition. We design, develop and run digital services and products. Our aim is to allow audiences to enjoy the BBC’s best content via their preferred route, whether that’s online, tablet, mobile, or through internet-connected TV.

Join us, and you can help transform the way media is consumed by creating experiences that weren’t possible in traditional broadcasting. If you’re ready to work with the best content, on the best platforms, this is your chance.

Latest figures – Annual Report 2012

BBC Online reached a record 43 million average weekly unique browsers in February.

BBC iPlayer programme requests reached 191.7 million in the month of February – the highest ever.

There have been 1.2 billion podcast downloads worldwide since the service began five years ago.

Our Give an Hour campaign, promoting media literacy, prompted 1.3 million people to get involved.

Our digital services are available on all digital platforms – desktop, mobile, tablet and connected TV – driven by recent innovations. The unique characteristics of each of these devices allow us to create outstanding experiences for our audiences that meet different needs – wherever they are and whatever they are doing. This was reflected in our growing reach figures, which peaked at 43 million average weekly unique browsers in February this year.

As the digital media landscape evolves there are a growing number of ways to reach audiences. Our content was available on over 500 different models from 37 different manufacturers in the UK last year, through partnerships with major providers including Virgin, Xbox and Apple. These partnerships underpin our commitment to universal availability and accessibility.

BBC Online and BBC Red Button are truly networked services: six of our 10 online products are now based in Salford and the creation of multiple editions allows us to reflect different audience experiences around the UK and across the world. Through working together and with others, we can ensure that we create truly outstanding content, invested with new and distinctive creative ideas.

The BBC puts a lot of effort into understanding its audience"

Daniel Danker, General Manager, Future Media
