What is it?
RealPlayer is a free application that lets you watch video, and listen to audio (interviews and so on) over the internet.

How do I get it?
You get the software from the Real Networks web site.
But it can be very confusing to find the FREE version, so we advise you to follow this guide from the BBC website. Enjoy!!!

And here's a 'FAQ' (frequently asked questions) guide to help with any streaming problems concerning services provided by the BBC

What does it cost?
The bonus is that it is free to download. (However, if you want more features, technical support and a manual, you must pay for RealPlayer Plus).

How does it work?
It works on a process called 'streaming'. Just as your television set shows programmes as it receives them through the aerial, the player displays programmes as it receives them through the Internet

Why do I want it?
When it's on your computer you will be able to watch and listen to all the BBC's broadcasts through the Internet.
And not just those. There are hundreds of radio and television stations all over the world which you can pick up on your computer.
