At the beginning of February 2015, the BBC replaced its varied assortment of internet radio feeds with a consistent set. This allowed them to retire old equipment. Unfortunately, they decided to keep the identity of these new streams a secret from the general public, providing them only to equipment manufactures and stream aggregating services. As a service to the license paying public, komadori has used research done by the Squeezebox community to provide a list of all the new HLS format feeds.
On 22 March 2021 the streams that used the Limelight content delivery service were turned off, with the ICY format streams replaced by in-house BBC streams. Once again the BBC has refused to give this information to the public. Information on the new ICY streams is derived from information provided by ‘bpsib’ on Github.
Each station is available at several quality (bit rate) levels. The Non-UK streams are only available at lower bit rates and will have gaps in programming when a programme is on for which the BBC only have UK broadcast rights. The BBC makes each HLS stream available via content delivery network Akamai. To copy a link, right click on the link for one of those in the list below for the service you are interested in.
