United Christian Broadcasters launches UCB Player

United Christian Broadcasters (UCB) has launched UCB Player, a new app which allows users to access all of UCB’s radio and TV channels, live and also via 7 days’ of Catch Up and On Demand.

From Monday (June 22) the UCB player will be available online and on all portable net-connected devices, including Android, Kindle Fire and iOS. In addition, the UCB Player will soon also be available via Internet-connected Smart TVs and on Freeview channel 241 (through the TVPlayer portal).

UCB’s Director of Broadcasting and Publishing Dave Withers said, “The way people watch TV and listen to radio has changed dramatically in the last few years and this new Player has taken us a long time to develop. It means that people can now access great movies, teaching programmes and concerts both live and on Catch-up, as well as listen again to any radio programmes on our 3 stations they may have missed in the previous 7 days. The Player is one of the first of its kind in UK Christian broadcasting and we’re excited about the possibilities.”

UCB has produced print and video guides online, (with characters Professor Algernon Braithwaite Browning (Esquire) and his technical assistant Prosser) demonstrating how to get the UCB Player on Smart TVs and portable devices. More info at http://www.ucb.co.uk/player
