The platform, developed by not-for-profit company UK RadioPlayer, whose founding partners are the BBC, Global Radio, GMG Radio, Absolute Radio and the RadioCentre, is a cross-industry move to bring online radio together in one place and boost listening via the internet.
RadioPlayer, accessed either via radioplayer.co.uk or participating stations' own websites, allows listeners to tune in online using pop out players that individual stations can personalise, adding - for example - adverts, now playing information and links to podcasts.
