The Fijian Broadcasting Corporation has this morning launched its new mobile app in an effort to better its service delivery.
The free to download FBC app allows people to access news and live broadcasts from the six radio stations.
Chief Executive, Riyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says customers will be able to view and download the app to ensure they stay abreast with what’s evolving locally and globally through our online, television and radio mediums.
Sayed-Khaiyum adds there are already 8,000 downloads of the app over the past few days through word of mouth.
“This extremely user-friendly app in our corporate colours allows us to view and listen to all new stories produced in the FBC Newsroom and breaking stories that you can share with others. You missed last night’s news bulletin – no problem, you can watch that here. Don’t want to watch the whole bulletin, but a particular story – you can do that too.”
Fiji’s premier English station, Gold FM has also been revamped with more music and content.
Gold FM Programme Director, Karalaini Koroi says apart from non-stop classics, listeners can expect the latest News and Sports update as well as international updates.
“Listeners can expect a variety of music, basically the whole improved – revamped Gold FM. You can expect to listen to a whole lot of different kinds of music from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond.”
From Monday, FBC News starts its one-hour bulletin filled with hard-hitting stories and relevant pressing issues from across the country.
Sayed-Khaiyum is optimistic this will further increase the local and international viewership.
The FBC app can be downloaded from the IOS and the Android platforms.
