Hi Simon,

There are a lot of problems with third party skills and integration.  For
example, you can no longer set an alarm to play a BBC station either.

All the best

hello all,
just a further update to the bbc skill conversation that was on here a
couple of weeks back I think it was. 
well, then I sent in an e-mail that I received, about it not working with
multiroom playback, or third devices, such as echo link or echo sub, but now
I have found something even more disappointing and I would say shoddy about
it won't even work with pares of echoes. 
I have a pare of echo plus second gen speakers, plus the echo sub. 
well, when I tried it out, I knew already that it wouldn't work through the
sub, but was then even more disappointed when the sound would only come out
of one of the echo plus speakers, so couldn't even get stereo. 
I tried it out with a couple of stations as well as the show that I
originally used it for, just to make sure it was consistently happening, and
not just a one off, and sound from only one speaker every time. 
so thought I would pass this on. 
I know if I leave a review about this skill, it will not be a good one.
