Perhaps they are working on the not too illogical thoughts that TVs are for watching pictures on and radios are for listening to. To listen to radio on TV sounds a bit silly to me. But WDIK.
There has been this new idea around for sometime called multi media ..... If you were correct that doesn't explain why they have decided to strand people with no way of looking at BBC Music interactive except on a small screen. At the minute the BBC iPlayer Radio on Android shows 96 episodes of Proms video compared to 17 on BBC iPlayer video via the Humax. I know a strange construct to put video for Prom fans on a baby screen ditto for most of the interactive events music. Clearly the target audience for the Proms aren't people who want to watch it on small screens and tablets.
This is one of their design mismatches of putting events music video on mobile devices and but not on the BBC Big Screen since they failed to develop the radio player for the big screen app citing that their wasn't a demand on the blog pages and bundling BBC Music events (in video) with the radio app. I'm intrigued where they will put BBC Three if implemented as interactive with Glastonbury / Reading events etc being stranded on the small screen. I think people would have something to say if Wimbledon disappeared onto a tiny screen. Obviously Proms is a new extra but it isn't being served up very well for the radio app only on small screens, ditto all BBC Music events.
Just design chaos. I don't think money comes into it.
Has it ever been explained why radio content was unbundled from the video app on the mobile platform which then set the design concept across platforms which the BBC aren't fully supporting across the big screen element and the resultant music events stranded on the small screen.
It was apparent that their was a gaping hole in the design concept with BBC Sport and BBC News as separate apps across platforms. BBC Music as an app was bundled into the iPlayer radio but not implemented on the big screen. I know this is getting close to the concept that music is for listening to and not for watching.... This brings us back to BBC iPlayer management not being managed at the next level up.
