Good work finding that out. Not surprised.
Of course, Bose is lying.
Bose is making money from TuneIn, more than vTune. Simple. No regard for customers what so ever!
Could easily add vTune back as a service that can be accessed just like Spotify, Sirus XM etc. But if they did that no one would listen to TuneIn because it sucks.
So they just allow us to vent an give us lip service, empty words expecting we will eventually just accept the new normal.
Well, I for one would love a way to hack my Bose speakers so I can install my own app. Maybe some enterprising developer might build one?
Then it would be bye bye SoundTouch.

I have now switched to Sonos and am playing around with it... They have about 30 or 40 different services available and all my stations are available in these different services(compared to Bose 4). There is no remote control...it is all app control. They do not have vTuner but allow to add stations URL which is what Bose is suggesting that will be doing..and I will put this to you
Adding the station is not just inserting the station website URL unfortunately. It is necessary to try to find out the stations streaming URL and the stream has to be MP3, AAC or WMA (some stations stream FLAC unfortunately). There are ways of finding this streaming URL by searching the broadcast data or using software like URLSnooper which is quite complex... So another way is to email stations and asking them... IF they reply I presume this is the easiest way and cant see them objecting to this..
So.... My thoughts would still be to bring back vTuner however if as Bose have told us they will add the ability to add stations through URL , That they are able to educate us all into how to obtain the station's streaming URL in a format that will work!!!!

I requested FMX Klassík last week, radio station in Iceland. It´s still not available in TuneIn, when will you expect it to be available?

Thanks for the report! I've moved your post to the station request thread.
Do you have any specifics? I'm unable to find a list of stations.

Please add Radio Margaritaville for location of North America United States North Carolina. We received it via internet prior to switch to TuneIn.
Better yet, bring back the previous Internet Radio service. It was better.
