What's Now, Next and Upcoming on BBC Radio and Television. Set reminders to be notified when a programme is about to start.
This extension lets you at-a-glance see what's Now / Next or Upcoming on BBC Radio and Television. It also let's you set reminders, so that you are notified when your chosen programmes are about to start.
To start, you choose the TV and Radio stations you are interested in, and then by clicking the BBC button in your browser bar, will see which shows are on or are coming up. From there you can click on the network to watch or listen live. You can also click on links for the shows them self and find out more information about them.
If you want to set reminders, you just click on the little clock icon that sits next to any of the upcoming programmes in the popup window. This will start a timer. When the timer is up, the browser will pop-up a notification on your desktop, letting you which show is about to start, with a link to watch or listen live. This notifications will appear above all the other windows on your desktop.
The Networks available Includes National, Regional and Local radio.
NOTE: The timers only work for the duration of your session, and will be removed when you close the browser. It also asks for permission to access you browser history. I have NO interest in this information, and neither does the extension. This seems to be a consequence of using notifications, and if I can find a way to remove this requirement, I will.
