View Full Version : Classic FM Blocked Outside of the UK

Fairly new to SqueezeNetwork and really love it. One of Slim Devices recommendations on SqueezeNetwork is Classic FM from London.

I love this station but in the past week they’ve stopped streaming outside of the UK. I went to the station’s website where they said if you enter a UK postal code, they’d open up the stream by placing an authorization cookie on your computer. Sure enough it plays via Windows Media Player but I really miss hearing that superb audio through Squeezebox.

Anyone know of any work-arounds? Ideally I’d like to still use SqueezeNetork but if it involves a configuration change in Slim Server, that would probably be okay.

Thanks.

Hmm I just fixed this one this morning, and it still works for me
from the US.
