BBC radio stations for UK users

If, like  me, you use the standard Internet radio function you can get BBC UK specific stations such as BBC Radio 5 & so on.

Separately and along with others I have been lots of trouble with interrupted or paused streaming for BBC radio. The UK telephone support recommend that you switch to TuneIN as the source to fix this. I am now trying this for BBC R4.

 

However TuneIn doesn't seem to support UK only versions of R5 and R5 extra so you get rights issue when listening to live events as the BBC thinks you are not in the UK. Normal broadcasting is just fine

 

I understand that Tunein is likely to become the only source for internet radio at some time. Bose can you reassure me that the UK versions will be added to Tunein? (oh and btw I like to have them on the preset buttons, so using aux source for radio would be irritating)

 

Thanks

Re: BBC radio stations for UK users

Hi grk999,

 

Thank you for the post.  I'm not sure if TuneIn plans on adding the UK geolocked versions of BBC Radio, but it would be an excellent inquiry for their support team.  

 

Let us know if you have any other questions or recommendations.

 

Best,

Brandon
