Google Assistant and Talksport on Tunein

  • 17 April 2021

For a couple of years, I have used Sonos One Google Assistant to play Talksport every day when returning home from work. This has worked flawlessly. For the past week, I have said “Hey Google, play Talksport” and instead it has found and played a station called U105 Christmas. I’ve tried several times and it now does the same EVERY time. 

Any ideas appreciated

I can confirm, sth similar happening to me.

I used to listen to “Fip” on tunein, and it used to work when saying…
Play f i p.

I use the assistant in german.


A month ago it then started playing a station called “fip strasbourg” which is not only the wrong one,  but also is somehow not existant or not working at all.

Tried in english, same result.


Tried “fip”, 
 Tried “f i p”


Both with and without “on tunein”


Found the station again with “play radio fip”


Thought it was sth specific to that station changing their station id.


Try asking for talksport 1089. That works.
