    What happened to CLASSIC FM London?

    Use to get the station CLASSIC FM from London, United Kingdom. It doesn’t seem to be available anymore.
    Can anyone tell me what happened to it and if it can be found under a different call letter?

    Thank you

    I see from your profile that you are outside UK.
    I think that TuneIn might be hiding stations from "Global" (Classic FM owner) for listeners outside UK.

    Try the RadioFeeds plugin from Vinnie Lo to see if you can get it from there.

    Perhaps it is related to the on-going court case between Sony and TuneIn (although I had thought that it would affect UK listeners only)

    A listener to a different Global station has reported, via Reddit, this feedback within the last week

    Global response: TuneIn has taken most radio stations off their services outside of the home territory of that station. This means that Global stations have been affected by this decision.

    TuneIn response: Please be informed that the broadcaster currently restricts access to this station to their country only. If you reside outside of the station's country of origin, unfortunately, you will no longer be able to listen to their streams through TuneIn. As to your question if this will be temporary, we don't have a timeline yet. This issue depends on the broadcaster.

    It disappeared from Tunein in December - Global Media are trying to force use of their smartphone player.

    Gone from Google Home but available via Echos with Global Player skill

    Thanks for sending the URL. I think I’ve been able to add
    Classic FM , London, UK to playlists. Time will tell if it will stick.
    Thank you all .
