SA-5 BBC Podcasts

Was thinking of purchasing an SA-5 for bathroom.

 

Is capable to play BBC radio podcasts via Internet Radio?

Hi taimar,

 

Thanks for the question!  How do you typically play the podcasts?  Is it through the BBC website, or do you have an external player?

 

Regards,

Brandon

Hi,

 

On the Roberts 93i Internet Radio, when you select the BBC stations, it asks if you want to play the station or select podcasts. It then gives you a list of podcasts available by genre. It's a very nice feature.

 

I know the SA-5 has Internet Radio capability. I was just wondering if you can a) play BBC stations and b) select the podcasts available.

 

Cheers,

 

martin

Hi Martin,

 

We do have all of the BBC stations available(both global and UK only), but we don't have BBC podcasts available.  I'm going to put in a request to see if we can get BBC podcasts added to Internet radio.

 

Thanks!

OK. Unfortunately I need a solution now and Sonos Connect Amp do support BBC podcasts.

 

So I am going down that route.
