What does "Recommended for you" mean?

Updated: 4 January 2022

When you’re signed in to the BBC, we’ll recommend things we think you’ll like. So as well as seeing what’s most popular, you can also discover other things you might otherwise miss.

How do you make recommendations?

We base them on how you’ve been using the BBC. For instance, if you watch lots of nature programmes, we might recommend a new David Attenborough documentary.

We also recommend things that people with similar tastes are enjoying. And we return the favour by recommending the things you like back to those people.

Where do I find recommendations?

Just look out for the things we’ve “Recommended for you”. You’ll find them on the BBC HomepageBBC iPlayerBBC Sounds and the BBC+ app.

How do I opt out of recommendations?

We keep any info about you secure, in line with our Privacy and Cookies Policy. You can read about what we do with your data here.

If you still don't want any recommendations, you can change the personalisation setting in your BBC account.
