Why can't I listen to radio on connected TV devices?

The BBC doesn't offer an on-demand radio service for connected TVs. However, live radio stations are available from your digital TV's electronic programme guide.

To listen to on-demand radio programmes you'll need to listen through the:

  • BBC Sounds website
  • BBC Sounds app for mobiles and tablets
  • BBC iPlayer Radio app for mobiles and tablets

You can find out more about how to use BBC Sounds in the following pages: 

Why is BBC Radio 1 available on connected TV devices?

You might have noticed BBC Radio 1 is one of the channels available on our BBC iPlayer TV application. This gives you access to BBC Radio 1's video content (such as interviews with bands and actors or film reviews) rather than their radio content.
