I've started using the "Stream Custom Radio URL" feature after I found this list.

Hey Daryljmullen,

 

Thanks for your message and welcome to the Bose forums.

 

We know how important keeping access to these stations is for our UK listeners. We are actively working with the BBC and TuneIn to reach a solution that is best for our customers and as soon as we know more, we will let you know.

 

Thank you in advance for your patience.

This will only effect people located in the UK
"Outside the UK, our services with TuneIn will continue as is – as they are and continue to be a valued partner."

From what I can tell, it looks like this wont be an issue. Bose added two features recently :

  1. A new internet radio service called Radioplayer. It streams multiple BBC Radio channels. I added a chart below that shows where RadioPlayer is currently avalible.
  2. The ability to add radio stations using their URL.

 

Either way you wish to listen to the BBC, it appears that you should be fine if the BBC is removed from TuneIn in the UK 🙂

Hey all,

 

We just wanted to provide you all with a brief update.

 

For the time being, BBC live radio streams on Bose speakers will remain unaffected. We are actively working with BBC and TuneIn to ensure continuity of experience.

 

We appreciate your patience and will continue to share any further updates as soon as possible.

 

Kindest,

Re: BBC Tunein Service Removed from 31.8.19

As of today, in Canada, all BBC stations no longer work on TuneIn on my SoundTouch. Is there a way to listen to BBC stations?

Hi Mcnuts, 

 

Thank you for your post and welcome!

 

In regards to your query,  you should be able to utilize the custom URL service in the SoundTouch Application. I have included a LINK HERE to assist you with how to set this up. 

 

Alternatively, you can try listening via Bluetooth or AUX if your system supports this. 

 

Let me know how you get on! 

 

Kindest, 

 

Jessie O

Thanks for the reply. It seems easy enough to do but I cant seem to find the custom URLs for BBC6, BBC4, etc. Any advice?
