    BBC Streams outside UK

    I am presently using SB in UK.

    What are the best URLs to access BBC Radios 3 and 4 outside UK?

    Does Squeezenetwork provide suitable streams outside UK?

    Is Alien BBC the best option if using Squeezecentre?

    R1-R4 live and "Listen Again" programs are only available in RealAudio outside of the UK and since RealAudio is not supported by SB they will not play without SqueezeCenter.

    AlienBBC provides RealAudio support and so is the best SB option to play BBC content outside of the UK.

    And real time streaming? Are these BBC streams available without Alien BBC on Squeezecentre, and on Squeezenetwork?

    No doubt I will find out when I try a setup in Cyprus, but it's nice to be forewarned.

    live = realtime.

    You must use AlienBBC to listen outside of the UK.
