BBC plans to offer listeners and viewers further access to music discovered through BBC radio and television

The BBC has revealed that it hopes to launch a new music streaming service in coordination with its ongoing push for listeners to curate their own playlists through the organisation.

The plans have been set out in the BBC's annual charter review and are set to offer users access to the 50,000 tracks that the BBC broadcast each month for a limited time period with an aim to allow for "new music discovery". The service would be an extension of the BBC's existing Playlister function which allows users to build playlists based on what they have heard on BBC TV and radio and listen to those playlists through music streaming services like Spotify. There is no confirmed launch date for this new service yet.
