    Any chance of getting BBC radio on iTunes?? For those of us using airport express and airtunes with speakers around the house this would be a great feature.

    :apple: come on apple...

    I believe at some point in the future the BBC will be changing their 64kbps Real streams over to 128kbps AAC Plus streams. There have been a bunch of delays, and not much information though. I do hope it happens though. I believe those new streams would work in iTunes.

    EDIT: Also, if you're in the UK on one of the supported ISPs, you can get an AAC stream multicast...I think the technology is similar to P2P. http://www.bbc.co.uk/multicast/radio/

    Hi All,

    Has there been any update to either the BBC or iTunes that will allow me to import BBC radio streams into iTunes?

    If so, does anyone know the stream addresses please?

    I'm geting a bit tired of running the BBC iPlayer through Airfoil to play BBC radio through airport express speakers!

    Thanks :)
