Hi,

I am new to Sonos I have used Tune In Pro on my phone for years, great app. However, I cannot seem to get regional variations on radio stations on the Sonos.

I live in Cornwall, Greatest Hits radio on Sonos is for Teeside, no good for local traffic etc. Can I change it??

This is due to legal action being taken out against Tune in.  The details, and how you can access stations direct is in the linked post;-

Hi,

Thanks for that, wasn't aware of this being such an issue.

The stations I am referring to are UK stations so it's just local regions that I am having issues with. This happens on Sonos radio as well as Tune in.

I have Truro as my location, and get Manchester as the Greatest Hits source, as well as some Glasgow, London and Essex stations in my “local” options. But I do see Heart Cornwall, Pirate, West Cornwall Coast FM and a few others as local stations. 
 

There are more choices of local station options using MyTuner Radio rather than TuneIn.

Check your location in settings on Sonos is set as UK.
