All of the main BBC Programmes are available through the Internet.

I have all the UK radio stations via my satellite dish Astra 28.2 and a box which receives Freeview channels. I did once pick up 5 Live and Radio 4 on my transistor but reception was very weak and faded out. On saying that in Santenay reception is not good on most radio channels.

Me to. Iuse The BBC iplayer and it does not block the radio stations, although it of course will not let you watch TV programmes.

Yes, I think that Gilberto must be talking about iplayer, which does not let you watch television, if you are outside of the U.K. I have listened to radio 4 in several countries, including the Caribbean, through the Internet. There really is not a problem.

When i try to listen to sporting events on 5 live through the internet this doesnt seem to work for me.

I'm really wanting to use a transistor radio to see if i can pick up any channels the most but thanks for all the tips

A transistor radio n Burgundy. Hmmm! An expensive "transistor radio" (for want of a better expression) may work, through the world service via short wave but not through radio 5.

Suggestion: Use your computer, or get involved in French sport.

By coincidence I read a posting on Normandy Anglo info from someone who receives English radio via his iphone he says you need an app for internet radio box this would seem to cover your mobility issue.

In case this correspondence is still continuing, I get radio 4 very well on an ordinary Roberts tranny west of Dijon - until the street light outside the house comes on. But still good for cricket.

Wow thanks Anny,Im also west of Dijon, but cant get radio 4 or TMS, ill have to invest in a better transistor.What relevance do you think the street light plays?
