    That FStream app picks up a lot of them. Unfortunately I think broadcast rights may limit some (BBC1) of being sent out in anything other than protected/non-streamable format. That or it's just not supported by the iPhone/iPod Touch (e.g. wma and rp).

    Didn't the BBC have a web app to listen to their stations?

    Not sure what "all" BBC stations are but WunderRadio gets 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 Live as well as a host of local ones as well (you pick locality it provides local stations). Hope that helps.

    I would like an App that allows me to listen to football games broadcast in the UK [I'm in the US]. Apparently WunderRadio doesn't allow this as the BBC blocks overseas match commentaries. Does anybody know of an App that will allow this?

    R ;)

    The thing is bbc reads you're isp, so when it knows you're not in the UK & it blocks you.. same with hulu here in the uk.. we cant watch it here because its for US only =/

    I suppose theres some sort of hack, but those are the black arts..

    I've managed to get BBC 6 on WunderRadio for some reason but none of the others - has anyone else outside the UK been able to (I'm in the States)? It really drives me nuts that I can get them all (except for 5 Live during a match of course) on my computer without an issue, and listen again on iPlayer - but on the iPhone they're blocked.

    I've tried inputing BBC1 On FStream and it won't work - maybe I need an updated URL? Any help would be appreciated, thanks. In the meantime I'll have to stick with Virgin Radio (I still refuse to call it Absolute, lol).

    WunderRadio - has all the BBC stations (I've only tried 1 + 2 though) here in the UK.

    Yeah, that threw me for a bit too :) spent ages looking for Virgin and couldn't work out where it gone. Only found Absolute by chance and then had a "doh!" moment.

    Never going to happen because of licensing agreements.

    Does anyone know if the BBC Asian network site works with Wunderradio outside of the US ?

    Or Nullriver's Tuner app for that matter ...?

    I've been able to download BBC podcasts via UK proxies (on the PC) but its tough finding a proxy that allows downloads more than 10MB....by the time I find one, the proxy address changes and I have to go and find a different proxy...:mad:
