Hi John

There is a BBC skill for the Echo which, when activated, plays BBC stations.
Just activate the skill, then say to an Echo: 'Play BBC Radio Four', or
whatever BBC station you want, and she will.

Kind regards,

Jackie Brown

Hello

I heard yesterday that the BBC have withdrawn all their stations from

Tune in due to them not sharing their data with the BBC.


If you Alexa uses the tune in app then this could be the fault.

I have no idea how to change the app that alexa uses to play radio but i am
sure

someone will.


pope this helps

automatically play on the Sonos speakers so if I ask to just play Radio 4 it
plays on the Sonos in the bedroom.  In the living room I have a couple of
Play One devices and those just work as well.  Interestingly enough I am
able to play Audible in the living room now using the Sonos which plays
using the faster speaking rate which is fantastic.  If I ask though to play
Audible in the bedroom the sound comes out of the Alexa and not the Sonos so
still some work to do there.  I haven't yet tried asking to play Audible in
the bedroom because when its night I prefer the sound coming out of the Echo
dot anyway.
