What are notifications?

Updated: 14 July 2020

What kind of notifications will I get?

At the moment we can give you notifications about new episodes of programmes you’ve added in BBC iPlayer, and shows that you’ve subscribed to in BBC Sounds.

Personalised notifications are also coming soon to other services like BBC Weather, Children's, News and Sport.

You can also get app notifications from services like BBC News that aren’t linked to your BBC account. You can find out more about these direct from the relevant app.

Will I get notifications on both the BBC website and in BBC apps?

You can access your personal notifications on the BBC website, by clicking the bell at the top of any BBC page. These will be based on things you’ve added or subscribed to, like TV programmes or podcasts.

We’re trialling personalised notifications in the Sounds and Bitesize apps. And we’re looking at other apps too – so watch this space.
