Can’t play any radio station at all all of a sudden, 

I get :“Unable to play “Sonos radio” access denied  or “unable to play the radio station” messages despite being logged in and able to play other music via Apple or Tidal without issue, internet connection good etc.

Have logged out and back in and tired from multiple devices, same.

Same issue here, since 13:00 CET.

I also have the same issue with Sonos Radio.
But on the other hand tune-in radio is working.

This morning Sonos radio was working again, without any change from my side. I guess there was a malfunction of the Sonos infrastructure and Sonos technicians managed to repair it.

Hi  @gebrouwe.

Welcome, thank you for reaching out to Sonos Community.

We will monitor this closely, thanks for you’re feedback.

Thanks all for adding some weight to this issue, appreciate your responses!

I too have Sonos/internet Radio back, seems to be some glitch in the permissions somewhere to me, but pleased it seems to have “fixed itself”.  

I’m estimating that my radio access was denied for up to 36 hours maybe a fare bit less, I wasn’t in trouble shoot mode, just slightly frustrated, but happily got on with a great weekend surrounded by fine SONOS sound just not radio.

Mystery continues, I will report if the same occurs again, maybe a pattern may appear.

Thanks Mark,

I may be missing something but I do not see anywhere a “subscriptions” link when I log in, puzzled by the instructions in your link.
