Hi Simon,

I do apologise, I thought it was just the Beeb throwing a spanner into the 
works.

All the best

Steve

Dear Customer,

We are writing to you regarding playing BBC live radio streams via TuneIn on
your Echo device(s).

Beginning on 30th September, BBC will cease support for BBC live radio
streams via TuneIn on Echo devices. You can still access BBC radio stations
via the “BBC” Alexa skill however, this skill does not currently support
playback via routines, alarms/timers, Multi-Room Music Playback or Echo
companion devices (Echo Sub, Echo Link and Echo Link Amp).

As a past user of Echo Sub, Echo Link and/or Echo Link Amp, we wanted to
make you aware of this change.

For more information about this change, please visit this BBC blog post:

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
