Radio stations

Post Posted: Thu Aug 21, 2014 3:57 pm

I enjoy listening to radio stations broadcast on Sky (rather than watching the TV!!!). There have been odd occasions over the past month or two when it has not been available for some reason. But suddenly, for the past 2 days I have not been able to pick up any radio stations (and I'm not talking about BBC stations).

Anyone any ideas please?

Sorry, I can't use the Internet (3G so limited on download capacity). I want the good quality FM broadcasts so that I can listen to Classic FM for example.

I have no problem listening or loss of quality for Classic fm you just need reasonable speakers just enter a UK post code.

If your using a "dongle" see if you can switch to a service with wireless router like Nos which don't have the same data restrictions as a Dongle, 3G is more than ample
