BBC Customisation Service
The UK version of the BBC News Front Page now includes an area where you can customise the content to make it more relevant to you.

In addition to news and weather for your local area, you can also add the latest sport headlines for your favourite teams.

What do I need to do?

Simply enter your postcode in the postcode box and hit "GO".

Customisation postcode

The default offering is local news and local weather. But you don't have to stop there - click on the "Add sport or more news" button to browse the full range of content options available.

Customisation change options button

On the options page, click on the + icons to reveal the full set of choices within a particular category. You can also change your weather location by entering a new postcode.

You can have upto 4 selections, any combination of news, sport and weather.

When you're done, simply click "Save" to store your selections.

Customisation categories

You can change your options at any time by clicking on the "Change selection" button at the bottom of this new customisation area on the Front Page.

The customisation feature uses a cookie to store your choices. If you delete your cookies, these will be lost and you will have to re-enter your postcode and your preferences.

If you are not interested in using the customisation feature, click on the "HIDE" button to minimise the option.

This service is in its "beta" phase. If you have any ideas on how to develop it further, we'd like to hear from you.
