BBC Bangla has added sports bulletins to its audio news available on mobile phones.
Sports fans across the country can now listen to one-minute sports updates by dialing a dedicated short-code for the service.
Sports updates are part of the 15 two-minute national and international news updates available throughout the day. The BBC Bangla mobile news service is available nationally in Bangladesh on all of the country’s mobile phone networks.
“There is clearly a high demand in Bangladesh for international sports news, particularly football and cricket,” said Sabir Mustafa, editor, BBC Bangla. “We felt that BBC Bangla will be well placed to offer this content to sport lovers across Bangladesh.”
