Not sure why Soundcloud isn't supported directly on Sonos (unless I'm overlooking something), but it's fairly cheap and easy to get it to do so (on Android).

BubbleUPnP is a fantastic app, that will recognize your Sonos devices as renderers. It's cheap, $4.69 IIRC. My Cloud Player is a great Soundcloud player.

So, with both apps installed, start your Soundcloud track on My Cloud Player, and click the Share icon. Select BubbleUPnP. Select your Sonos device in BubbleUPnP. Music!

Does not this apply to your request?:

Either Soundcloud needs to code up to the Sonos API or get Tunein to list their station.

Or I'm missing the point here...

Best of Luck
Huh? I'm showing a simple way to get Soundcloud to play on Sonos, since Soundcloud for unknown reasons hasn't done it themselves.
It's been added to Sonos today, per this article. Not showing up for me yet...

How did you enable it?
I did not find it either in more music or sonos labs. Joining the beta didn't help.
For me it was just visible via "add music service" in the app. (Don't know the exact English name as I'm using the German version of the app.)

It took a few hours, but it showed up in Add Music Services eventually. Try restarting the app...

It looks like it is under "Sonos Labs" in Add a Music Service
