The BBC has decided to significantly expand radio content downloads via its iPlayer platform on the web and mobile devices, beginning next year. The DRM-protected downloads will make it easier to listen to programming when a connection isn't available (especially important to mobile users).

"This means that listeners will be able to download radio shows for up to seven days after the broadcast and have a 30-day window to open it. Once they’ve 'opened' it, they will then have a further seven days to listen to it. So this essentially extends the listening window from one week to six weeks," reports TheNextWeb here.

This news comes shortly after the company reported continued listening growth via iPlayer Radio -- "a record-breaking 74 million requests, up 3% on March's 72 million requests," writes DigitalSpy here. The company says news of the death and funeral coverage of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher drove increased listening.
