I keep getting a message when listening to BBC radio saying that I’ll no longer be able to use the BBC sounds service on a smart speaker after mid 2023. It says to contact the manufacturer to resolve the issue. Anyone found a way to keep listening on a Sonos speaker?

Your title says “BBC Sounds” but the body says “BBC radio”. Confused.

The fix for BBC radio (on TuneIn) is to use “BBC Sounds” by adding it to your Sonos system. Several threads on how to do this.

I’m playing Radio 1, Radio 4 etc via MyTuner so maybe that’s where the problem lies. Thank you - it sounds like if I play them via BBC Sounds the problem will be resolved.
