BBC will not be making any apps for Windows 8 or WP8

Yep the BBC has confirmed they have no plans to produce a modern UI app for Windows 8 or Windows Phone any time soon so don't hold your breathe!

"The Android and Apple platforms account for approximately 75% of the UK smartphone market. Apps are costly to develop and maintain and, as a publicly funded organisation, we have to prioritise our development around the areas and platforms where we will achieve the greatest reach of users at the lowest cost." – According to an unnamed BBC spokesman - Neowin

"We are always looking at new and existing platforms to bring BBC iPlayer to, but have no plans to launch a native app for Windows 8 mobile devices in the immediate future." – According to an unnamed BBC spokesman - Neowin
