Question BBC World Service

Hi all.

Is there a way to listen to the BBC World Service on 5th edition phones?

I used to listen via Internet Radio, now conspicuous by its absence.

Can't find it on iPlayer. Any alternatives?

Many thanks.

The N97 applet "Podcasting" comes with the BBC World Service pre-configured as one of the subscribable podcasts.

Most providers would prefer that you use downloadable podcasts instead of live streaming because of the latency within their systems.

I prefer podcasts in that you can pause and restart them or rewind to catch anything that you might have missed.

The real player streams on this page work for me:

Thanks Ash. That's interesting as on my N97 Mini I get 'Unable to play media clip' on World Service!

And thanks rdcinhou, that's a great tip.
