Listen Early

BBC Podcasts Premium offers early access and ad-free listening for a range of the BBC’s most popular titles for listeners on Apple Podcasts. This is perfect for fans of the BBC brand and all its content as it means you can now enjoy more of its content on more platforms.

Moreover, the international rollout of this podcast coincides with today’s launch of The Global Story, a brand-new daily news podcast from BBC Studios and BBC World Service. Hosted by Katya Adler, The Global Story drills deep into a single story everyday offering unrivalled context and deeper insight, drawing upon the BBC’s best global journalists and expertise from all over the world.BBC Podcasts

The BBC Goes Global

The global expansion of BBC Podcasts Premium follows earlier launches in Australia in May and New Zealand in March of this year and in the U.S. and Canada in 2021. In 2022, BBC Podcasts Premium ranked as one of Apple’s top 20 subscriber channels. BBC Podcasts Premium’s international rollout marks the latest step forward for BBC Studios’ expanding audio unit.

On top of that, earlier this year, the BBC announced the move of audio production in selected genres including factual, entertainment and drama from the BBC’s in-house production team to BBC Studios. BBC Studios’ new audio production unit will be headed up by Richard Knight, while international audio distribution and monetisation is led by Louise la Grange.
