    Iphone Radio app for local footy?

    hi all,

    does anyone know any good radio apps for the iphone? I'm looking for one that plays several stations but importantly does anyone know of an app that will play local radio footy feeds?
    Some will know what i'm on about but basically,BBC Radio Sheffield cover live footy but,when you listen to that feed over the net it's not allowed to stream the footy.....

    You will get local channels but if its BBC it will be blocked for the football, its a real pain in the backside!

    I had same issue trying to find BBC radio Leicester for Tigers matches. Found ooTunes can't remember how much it was but does the job brilliantly!!

    Hi

    To get the BBC stations to stream (as the Ipod doesn't have flash) I downloaded Fstream (free on itunes). It's a bit of a faff to add the stations but I have managed Radio 2, Radio 5 live, Smooth radio and Radio City and they all work well. May be a bit more difficult finding the URL of commercial stations (Smooth took me ages) but google is your friend :-)

    And here's a list of the BBC station URLs:

    You have to type them in carefully but they work fine on Wifi (can't say about 3g as only have the touch) and it is all in lower case.

    HTH
