Rolling News Stations

Postby dotdotuk » Sun Apr 15, 2012 10:33 pm

I used to listen to WCBS and 1010WINS before CBS "geo-blocked" them. Does anyone know any good alternatives?

I'm not interested in the "Talk" stations - just want news!

I normally listen late at night/early morning so it tends to be American stations I listen to as it is their prime-time ( and in English!)

Cheers,

Henry

Auntie Beeb is still good. Not quite so good as she was before the cuts, but still good. Auntie provides a World Service 24h rolling news station over the internet (in addition to the more general World Service stations). Here you go:

For the BBC World Service, any time is prime time as it is made for a global audience upon which the sun never sets. :)~

It would be possible still to listen to those blocked stations, but it would need a bit of effort and expense.

You would need to subscribe to a VPN service (e.g. Overplay VPN), and also install Jamcast, then use a computer to access the USA via VPN and broadcast the station via Jamcast to your Flow.

Probably too complicated, but most things are possible! BTW, you could then also access Pandora.

Thanks guys.

I notice the World Service has 3 English versions. Normal, a North American version and an English News version.

I already have Jamcast in order to listen to flash based live sports.

Cheers,

Henry

Actually, on The Lounge there is a fourth. BBC World Service Africa is also in English (well sometimes):

Give it a go in the spirit of internet radio? You get that international feel whilst still under the comforting guidance of Auntie. :)~

Some how the World Service is not the same without the crackle, hiss and fading of the short wave bands, I think they call it character :D

LOL

I remember trying to listen to NFL games on the American Forces Network. The sound would fade in and out, get loud and quiet!
