FBC goes global, launches first ever radio apps
9:18 pm GMT+12, 13/09/2017, Fiji

The Fiji Broadcasting Corporation has launched the country’s first ever radio apps.
 
Listeners around the world can now access FBC’s four stations, GoldFM, MirchiFM, BulaFM and 2DayFM for free via the app.
 
FBC Chief Executive, Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says that it hasn’t been easy for FBC to become the first broadcaster in the country to have an official app for radio.
 
“The reason why we are very proud of the apps is that we have developed the apps to make it something wonderful not only for our listeners but for our clients as well.”
 
App Creator, Marco Arena says it was a challenge putting the app together for Fijian listeners.
 
“You don’t want to have an app that is too complex or too hard to use or otherwise your customers will just delete it from their phones. So it’s really important to get the right recipe, to have it fast and quick for the fast life of Fijians.”
 
The radio apps are now available to all android phones via google play and will be available to IOS phones next week.
 
Meanwhile, Fiji Broadcasting Corporation television viewership has increased to seventy-four point six percent, making FBC TV the most watched station in the country.
 
Chief Executive, Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says just over six years after its launch, the company’s TV station continues to reach great heights.
 
He said the latest survey results make FBC TV number one, something which has been attributed to the hard work of all involved.
 
“We have been very keen at least since I’ve been at FBC to engage with an international survey company to give us the true results of what we have been doing and the success we’ve had and also to find out what changes we can make to make things better not only for FBC but for our clients as well.”
 
The survey was done by an Australian company, Pulse Insight and was conducted between April to May this year.
 
Fijians over the age of 16 years were part of the survey.
