Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
LBC Podcasts allows you to listen to all your favourite shows from London’s Biggest Conversation, whenever you want, wherever you want.
Whether it’s Nick Ferrari, Iain Dale, Steve Allen or any of our other presenters, you can download or stream all their shows – in full – to your phone to listen at a time that is convenient for you.
NB: This is a free app and some short podcasts are free, but you will need to purchase a subscription to listen to most of the podcasts, including all the full shows.
A subscription includes:
Three Year Archive
Subscribers have access to all our shows, in full, from the last three years.
You can download podcasts and listen offline, which means you can catch up on shows anywhere, from an underground commute to a far-flung beach. The podcasts will play on any smartphone, MP3 player or tablet device.
All the news, travel and ad breaks have been removed, allowing you to listen to your favourite presenter without interruption.
Subscribing to the LBC Podcasts app will also give you access to the LBC Podcasts website, where you can download the podcasts to your computer.
The subscription packages available, which will give you full access to our podcast archive, are:
One month: £3.99
Three months: £8.99
Six months: £11.99
All of these subscriptions are auto-renewing, but you can cancel at any time.
Your subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current subscription. Your account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period, and identify the cost of the renewal. You can manage your subscription at any time and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to your Account Settings after purchase. Your account will remain active until the end of the current subscription.
The app includes a range of free podcasts, including Call Clegg, Ask Boris and Steve Allen’s A Little Bit Extra, which you can download and listen to without the need to subscribe or register. For full shows, you will need to purchase a subscription.
What's New in Version 1.0.8
We've squashed a few bugs, improved the app's performance and made Steve Allen 20% funnier.
Ok but unreliable and poor Voiceover support
Is LBC *EVER* going to fix the accessibility issue in this app? It seems you just do not care about your visually impaired listeners.
The podcasts and episodes are not set up in a way VoiceOver can handle, so they are all read out as "Button" instead of the text descriptioni a sighted user would see. This makes it effectively useless in terms of Voiceover accessibility.
It cannot really cope with being off-line, too much is dependent on having a wi-fi connection. Even when connected, downloaded episodes often stop unexpectedly and won't start playing again. Sometimes flipping between two episodes gets them to restart, but that isn't guaranteed.
Love LBC - Shame about this app!
I absolutely love listening to LBC and I always have it on, at home, in the car, at the office. So I thought I would subscribe to their premium podcast service. I paid my 6 month subscription and downloaded this app. I honestly have to say that this is the WORST app I have ever downloaded! It's almost impossible to find a programme that you are searching for. The podcasts are in a random date order, so if you want to listen to say the last James O'Obrien show you think you would click on his pic and it would be the most recent podcast to download... Well guess what it never is! The dates, programmes etc are in no logical order. This app really does let the subscription service down. Come on LBC update this app and make it usable!
App doesn't reflect the great station
The Latest section never updates unless force closing the app and reopening. Please fix this. An an iPhone 6S with 2Gb memory, this is especially annoying, since the app generally remains running in the background. Please add an update timer to allow a refresh, or at least implement a 'pull down' refresh from the Latest tab.
Without a fully functioning 'Latest' section, this is a massive let down, especially for us paying subscribers.
