It’s the new ‘TV’ app which has appeared on my iPhone with the latest iOS update, I assume. Here’s a landscape grab from my phone. I think that’s Reith too on the programme titles. As far as I can see, and I haven’t played it much, all it does is aggregate tv programmes together in a single app, pointing to the respective players when you want to watch something, a bit like the News app.
It replaced the old ‘videos’ app, where programmes downloaded from iTunes appeared.

Reith on iPlayer is incoming in the new year. In the meantime, you can try it out on the iPlayer website with the following bookmarklet:
Quote:
javascript:var htmlTag = document.querySelector('html'); if (htmlTag.classList.contains('b-reith-sans-loaded')) { htmlTag.classList.remove('b-reith-sans-loaded'); } else { htmlTag.classList.add('b-reith-sans-loaded'); }

The new TV app for iPad, which pulls together TV shows from iPlayer, ITV Hub etc - the thumbnails for BBC shows have the show title written in Reith. Wonder if that means iPlayer is next to be updated?

Am I right in saying the titles are burnt into the thumbnail images (podcast artwork style), rather than rendered by the app?

On the BBC website they detail the different font weights and the thin version just looks like it would be better. Using the regular version on documents, the font just seems a little too thick so it would be more used at larger sizes for titles etc. and not for large blocks of text etc.
