Sonos Voice wont play LBC UK

Title says it all, really. I can’t get SVC to play LBC radio. If I choose it through the app, it’s fine. But with SVC I get weird and wonderful results. I’ve scoured the forums and tried everything I’ve found as suggestion, all to no avail.

Has anyone been successful in this, and if so, could you please tell me the magic words?

Hi @Traveller 

Thanks for your post!

This is, unfortunately, expected. Although Sonos Voice Control is available everywhere, it is so far only supported for US English and French. Because of this, it has only been trained on the names of the most listened-to stations in America. It is not expected to be able to understand the names of UK stations as of yet. We are of course seeking to support new regions in the future.

I hope this helps.

OK - thanks Cory!

Can SVC handle Sonos Favorites? If it can, make a Favorite from the station and try that.
