Question

Spanish internet radio not streaming in UK


My Spanish internet radio stations are no longer working in the UK.  These include Blue Marlin, Ibiza Sonica, Ibiza Global Radio, Costa Del Mar - Chillout.

All other TuneIn stations from outside the UK seem to be working fine and Ibiza Sonica is steaming fine when you go to their website.

If you search for Ibiza Sonica in the Sonos app it comes up as a Sonos Radio station but won’t play.

 

Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

 

Thanks

Hi Matt, while staying in another country outside Spain, I was able to listen to Ibiza Sonica via TuneIn but it stopped the streaming of another Spanish station via TuneIn, that I was listening to on another Sonos device. I had to switch back from Ibiza Sonica to the other station to get it started again on TuneIn. Maybe this give you a clue.

Thanks for your response but other friends in London are having the same issue so I think it might be something less localised...

Hey Matt!!! 

Exactly the same for me! Around a week of not playing and even disappeared from my favourites! ?!?! Won’t play at all and I’ve tried a few things like the old on/off and even delete and re-find the stations  

 

help needed the same as some quality stations now missing / not playing!! 


 

Have you contacted the stations directly? I have to wonder if they haven’t implemented geo restrictions. 

Hi gents,

I’ve contacted TuneIn 

Thank you for contacting us regarding this issue. Unfortunately, due to licensing issues, these stations has been geo-restricted out of the UK. We apologize for the inconvenience.  
 

Looks like they did not pay due to a current Covid situation. It is possible to stream from their app via an Airplay To Sonos device (if supported) my Play1 gen one  doesn’t support the Airplay hence Its time to upgrade to gen two.

Im sure they’ll be back sooner or later.

Use Add a radio station in the Sonos app - add http://94.75.227.133:8136 

This plays for me - Ibiza Sonica

Hi guys

I managed to get these stations to stream by adding MyTuner as a service - they’re all working on there so all good.

Thanks for your help.

 

Matt

I can’t get these working, even using MyTuner. Ibiza Sonica, Ibiza Global Radio, makes me sad.

Use Add a radio station in the Sonos app - add http://94.75.227.133:8136 

This plays for me - Ibiza Sonica

Ibiza stations here: https://www.internet-radio.com/search/?radio=ibiza

You need to check the m3u or pls file for the actual stream url.

Nice list castalla how do I get it working on my Sonos play1 1st gen?

You follow the instructions here to add a radio station by URL:

https://support.sonos.com/s/article/260?language=en_US

Ibiza Sonica - http://94.75.227.133:8136 

Ibiza Global Radio - http://37.59.254.24:8024

Blue Marlin - http://94.75.227.133:8635

 

If you can find the stream, you’re normally given the option to download the M3U file or something like that. When I opened the M3U for Ibiza Global Radio, the contents look like:

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1,(#1 - 402/750) : Ibiza Global Radio :
https://37.59.254.26:8024/
#EXTINF:-1,(#2 - 408/750) : Ibiza Global Radio :
https://37.59.254.24:8024/
#EXTINF:-1,(#3 - 410/750) : Ibiza Global Radio :

#EXTINF:-1,(#5 - 414/750) : Ibiza Global Radio :
https://37.59.254.28:8024/
#EXTINF:-1,(#6 - 417/750) : Ibiza Global Radio :
https://46.105.171.217:8024/
#EXTINF:-1,(#7 - 441/750) : Ibiza Global Radio :
https://37.59.254.27:8024/
#EXTINF:-1,(#8 - 447/750) : Ibiza Global Radio :
https://37.59.254.25:8024/

Just take one of the URL’s and change it from HTTPS to HTTP and it should work for you. Added stations appear under Radio by TuneIn > My Radio Stations

Mrpedros thank you very much 👍🏻 It’s working.
Can this be done from IGR original web site? Maybe the sound quality would be better ? Or from their app?

No worries. And not as far as I’m aware. That URL was taken from the M3U file I got to stream directly from their website, couldn’t find another address :( 

 

Thanks all,

 

I just logged back in to say that I found if I downloaded Radio.net app, search Ibiza Global etc etc saved and then linked Radio.net app to my Sonos account it plays as normal!!! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Same issue for me…. it’s still allows you chose and play it - but nothing happens. One work around for Ibiza Global Radio is to play from their app and then airplay it via Sonos. Not ideal. But a temporary solution ?

First off the, I don’t think TuneIn are being honest, I installed an app called Simple Radio on my Echo and then asked it to stream Ibiza Global Radio and it did so, without vpn and without issue.

 

So I’m not buying the Geo Block they are claiming is coming from these stations.

 

Has anyone got a working https stream for ibiza global radio ??? Alexa wont allow http streams :(

 

 

 

 

Hi, I found this thread looking for the same reason why these 3 radio stations have ceased to stream on TuneIn. I guess with Covid-19 and maybe something to do with Anna Tur being asked to leave IGR, as director. IGR owns the frequencies that Sonica and Blue Marlin use (I believe).

This might be worth a shot… Excuse the naivety, I’ve only used Sonos a couple of times, but it streams via Wifi, so this may work.

I use Chromecasts, so I was a bit miffed when I saw they’d gone. Although, there are dozens of other similar and great stations for Ibiza on TuneIn. Search ‘Ibiza’ in TuneIn and save a few after listening, or Google ‘Ibiza radio stations’ to add. For example ‘OpenLab’ is a great one, as is ‘Ibiza Live Radio’.

Download ‘VLC Media Player’ or ‘LocalCast’ (other similar media/network players available). 

For VLC, copy the first IP > go to ‘stream’ in the menu > paste the IP in > and voila. You can then save it and make a playlist. Repeat for the other 2, adding to that playlist.

Ibiza Sonica - http://94.75.227.133:8136 

Ibiza Global Radio - http://37.59.254.24:8024

Blue Marlin - http://94.75.227.133:8635

From here, you should be able to choose your network player of choice to stream to… Sonos/Chromecast. 

Apologies if this isn’t possible with Sonos =)

Just use Add radio station option:

Ibixa Global -  http://37.59.254.24:8024/

See Anna Tur's Instagram post. Read for all the English talking folk, Espanol in words.

Hello Mate

I believe its because TUNE IN have allocated the stations to PREMIUM paif for service...perhaps very popular stations theyre now.making u pay for...so theyre there of u go premium on Tune in

ALSO YOU CAN ADD THE SERVICE RADIO.NET AND ACCESS IBIZA GLOBAL RADIO VIA THAT....JOB DONE !

Thanks all,

 

I just logged back in to say that I found if I downloaded Radio.net app, search Ibiza Global etc etc saved and then linked Radio.net app to my Sonos account it plays as normal!!! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 

Thanks JJPen and everyone else on this string. The Radio.net workaround has got Ibiza Sonica back on stream here. And my withdrawal symptoms are easing

Phew…. glad found this thread. Thanks for finding a workaround to this weird issue - my summer has literally been saved!

 

Thanks!
