Spanish internet radio not streaming in UK


Userlevel 1

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

Similar problem here. Our much-loved "ABC Lounge", broadcast from the south of France has disappeared from Sonos.  I haven't got to the bottom of it yet, but I suspect it is something's to do with TuneIn Radio.  The ABC Lounge output still exists on various platforms, but we cannot get it to work on our Sonos system, It is very frustrating. I am going to read the above suggestions very carefully and see if there is somebody way round the problem. 

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 :

#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

Awesome cheers. I don’t know how I’ve survived this long without Ibiza Global Radio 😎😎😎

Here’s the m3u link :

I had the same problem.  Started when I was trialing the new Sonos S1 beta app.  I contacted the Sonos Beta team at the time and they said they would look in to it but never heard any more.  I contacted TuneIn and got really bad service and a crappy explaination that suggested they hadn’t a clue and didn’t care and I contacted Ibiza Sonica but never heard back!

So it is nice to get confirmation that they have shifted the stations to Premium.  At least I know now! 

I’ve added MyTuner today but don’t seem to be able to sync my MyTuner account to the Sonos app.
I’m going to set up the radio stations direct in the Sonos app as various people have suggested above now if I could work out how to do it!  Can’t find ‘Add radio station option’.

Using the Sonos App for iOS or Android:

  1. From the Browse tab, select Radio by TuneIn
  2. Tap My Radio Stations
  3. Tap the three dots in the top right and tap Add New Radio Station
  4. Enter the Streaming URL and Station Name and tap OK

Hi,

been looking into this for a while. I don not have a Sonos, but a HEOS.

The situation is exactly the same, foreign radios are blocked more and more often (Italian, French), which are otherwise accessible from everywhere.

 

I have reported it to TuneIn and I got the usual scripted reply with no added value.

But, I don’t think they have moved the radios to the Premium service.

 

This is what I have found

https://www.simkins.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/Ent.-LR-Article-Tuneln-22.12.19.pdf

 

I can’t read legalese well, but it looks like they face some dispute from broadcasters for going round their webpage and advertise direct urls… not sure.

 

Anyway, I have seen that Sonos introduced Sonos Radios, and wanted to get your opinion if it solves the issue?

Is Sonos Radios a better version of TuneIn, unrestricted?

Regards

 

I’m finding more and more stations being restricted from abroad (Ibiza in this case). Yet I can stream them freely over the internet so TuneIn is becoming irrelevant to me but degrading my Sonos experience.

 

Sonos Radio just seems to be a white label version of TuneIn to me. Has the same problems!

This is an old thread, but the recent UK radio problem started Thursday, described here: https://en.community.sonos.com/music-services-and-sources-228994/tunein-blocking-foreign-radio-stations-in-the-uk-master-thread-6848128

Sonos any idea how can I stream directly from their app? Or do I need to update my Play 1 ?

Yeah, it screwed for me too. 
 

I’ve had to modify the streaming url to the below:

 

http://ibizaglobalradio.streaming-pro.com:8024/

 

at least with it being a URL like that rather than IP, if they change servers should still work. 
 

good luck!

 

people talking about radio.net here, all I get is an error about not being able to browse anything when I use that app.

this works thanks!

Great thread and thank you very much for the help setting up Ibiza Sonica main station in my new Sonos.

A question though, I would like to get their different stations in aswell like ‘Sonica Club’ ‘Bless your sound’ ‘SoniCalm’ ‘Where’s the after party’.

Anyone that have recommendations to find these IP adresses?

I found some of the other Sonica station by creating a free myTuner account and linking this service in to Sonos.

Anybody know what the URL for Blue Marlin is?  Mine seems to have stopped working again yet Ibiza global and sonica are both fine?

Ibiza Live Radio add like this, works a treat :)

Add New Radio Station

Tune in > My Radio Stations > Add New Radio Station > Add this url and give it a name: Ibiza Live Radio
