    BBC radio no longer working via MySB.com ?

    Hello

    My Boom MySB.com BBC radio presets have suddenly stopped working.

    Can I still get access to BBC via MySB.com or has the plug finally been pulled ?

    This is probably the Tune-in issues from about 4 weeks ago - BBC will not let Tune-in relay BBC radio.

    Use the Logitech BBC Radio App or save the BBC radio URLs as Favorites / Preset

    Thanks

    I tried searching for the BBC stations via "Radio" option in Boom menu to save as new Boom button presets, but couldn't find then (R1,2,3,4,6 etc.)....

    Ok, found them now and saved to faves. Playing on my S9+ phone via MySB.com and SBPlayer. Will change presets on both my Booms tomorrow !

    Is the audio quality of these streams similar to the previous presets which disappeared ?

    Is the plug likely to pulled soon on accessing BBC via MySB.com at all ?

    Quality is the same UK/Non-UK as there is only one set of MP3 URLs.
    What was probably deleted was a Tune-in playlist which goes to BBC URLS after Tune-in did their own processing.
    IIRC BBC didn't like Amazon via Tune-in monitoring users - so Tunein only affect UK users.

    Don't know.
    BBC have their own motives.
    They have indicated they want to drop MP3 streams many times. BBC will provide access to radio streams - the problem will be whether they provide the access as MP3 streams as BBC would prefer to retire them.
