The BBC Sounds app isn't available on my TV

We're rolling out the BBC Sounds app on connected TVs, games consoles and set-top boxes throughout 2020. In the meantime, 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 or BBC Sounds app for mobiles and tablets.

Why is Radio 1 available on BBC iPlayer on connected TVs? 

You might have noticed BBC Radio 1 is one of the channels available on our BBC iPlayer 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.
