BBC ALBA Goes Live On BBC IPlayer

BBC ALBA, the Gaelic television channel, has announced that it is now available live on BBC iPlayer.
Live streaming of the channel is an important step towards increasing the channel's accessibility throughout the UK. BBC ALBA can be seen on the BBC iPlayer at: www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/gd/playlive/bbc_alba.
Margaret Mary Murray, Head of Service for BBC Alba, said: "We are pleased to announce that BBC ALBA has now joined the line-up of live television channels available on the BBC iPlayer. This is a boost for the channel and has come at a great time when we've just launched our exciting new programmes for the autumn season."
Subject to available rights, programmes can be viewed by all internet users across the UK, including those with IP-enabled mobile devices. A small range of programmes have online rights restrictions including sport, children's cartoons and old archive content and cannot therefore be shown in this way.
BBC ALBA's schedule offers a range of high quality, distinctive, Scottish programming covering a broad spectrum, including daily news, documentaries, some comedy and drama, factual series covering current affairs and religion, entertainment and lifestyle, music, children and youth programming as well as sports coverage.
BBC ALBA is available on Sky 168 and Freesat 110.
