Just in case anyone interested its been taken off the tunein app possibly because of the election and I would have thought some of you who get fed with music liston don't you?

How long before an Albert H anti-PC rant appears on this thread?!

BBC stations have been removed from Tune In on some platforms in the UK due to some sort of disagreement about data sharing, so I'm not sure that it's in connection with the election.

I suspect they've all been removed from TuneIn to force people to download/listen to BBC content from their stupid Sounds app. I've been forced to do this to listen to the football on 5 Live - They are all still available/listenable if you search TuneIn using a VPN so they may be geo-locked in the UK?

Unfortunately these don't work when the football's on (have tried these!) - Can only assume it's to do with Premier League rights issues/BBC's insistance on people using their app. I'd imagine if you're into politics/other BBC content & not the football then these links are all good.

Connect to their stream via the website, then use wireshark to sniff the real streaming URL which you can then load into any generic streaming app or VLC player.

That partially works. Unfortunately the results you get are for the 96 or 128 kb/s awful streams.
