UKRadioLive - UK's Internet Radio Stations In One Place
We've collected more than 100 UK radios carefully on our online radio site for you. Most of the radios have the feature of song-info or programme title display. The played songs can be searched in the Playlist menu, and the next programmes of the radios can be viewed 1 week ahead in the Schedule menu. The most popular internet radios have archives, so their programmes can be listened to again in the Archives.
Our internet radio site was created for listing together the most popular online available radios of the UK, and to give easy and free access to them at the simplest way in one place. On UKRadioLive you can find the United Kingdom's most popular online radios, the most important general information about the stations, their contact options, frequencies, related news, and if available, the programme schedules and playlists. You can also listen again to programmes of certain radios in their archives. There is no required external software to listen-in, just your freshly updated web browser. To begin you just need to click on the name or logo of the radio station in the radio-list, and the broadcast will start automatically. This way you can easily listen to Heart Radio, Absolute Radio, Capital FM, Classic FM, LBC, KISS, Magic Radio, Smooth Radio, talkSPORT, talkRADIO, Clyde 1, Planet Rock, Virgin Radio UK, Kerrang Radio and many more online radios of the UK via internet.
Suitable devices to enjoy your favourite online radios
The radio broadcasts are available on desktop computers, as well as on smart mobile devices too. So you can enjoy your favourite online radios on any Android or iOS device. The only required software you need to play the radios is your favourite browser. Since the browsers change by the time, we test them continuously for the perfectly enjoyable radio-listening experience. Therefore you can choose the default Android browser, Opera Classic, mobile or desktop Chrome, or Mozilla-Firefox for radio-listening. In line with the challenges of the times, we've also created our native Android and iOS applications, so you can listen to your favourites not just in your browser. You can find them in the footer in the Contact menu.
Why we recommend the online radio listening
There are almost only advantages of the online radio listening compared to the conventional way. The broadcasts' quality is interference free, excellent, and continuous, while the FM radios highly depend from the area, terrain, weather and many other faulty factors. Depending on internet access, the online radios are available all over the world, without the difficulty of searching frequencies, with just one click we can reach our favourite radio!
Thanks to the online way, the radios' previous playlists and future programmes are available on our UKRadioLive website and applications too. By the previous playlists, the earlier broadcasted songs can be listened to again, and you can check what programmes will be broadcasted later. Also we have radio archives, where you can listen to certain radio programmes again. Sometimes the online radio broadcasts have also disadvantages. For example the broadcast can lag if the online listener number is very high, this can cause the overload of the radio server. To prevent it, the most popular online radios, like BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 4 Extra, BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra, BBC Radio 6 Music, Classic FM, KISS, Magic, talkSPORT, Absolute Radio, Capital FM, Heart, Virgin and Smooth have alternative broadcaster servers, by using them, we can avoid the lag. The other disadvantage affects only those smart-mobile users whose data traffic is limited and have to pay according to their data usage. For them, the use of online radios may be expensive, so be careful! Usually the broadcasts transmit between 32 kbit/sec and 128 kbit/sec to the user's device. This depends on, and define the quality of the broadcast. So, about 1 MB/minute data traffic can be generated on your smart device by listening to radios. Thus, the best option in this case is to connect to a free WiFi-network and enjoy your chosen radio without data restriction! Luckily, several mobile service providers offer unlimited data for reasonable price, in this way, you can enjoy listening to radios on your phone to the fullest.
What if the radios don't work on the site
If the radios won't start, you have more options to find out wether the fault is in your device, or at the radio. Since it often happens that the issue is with the radio streams, or with the system of the listener's device, we've developed a troubleshooting page for the radios. By a few simple steps, you can find out what could cause the issue. Of course there are many issues which can be identified only individually, those types of issues can't be solved with that. If you see that the troubleshooting shows everything fine, but the radio still doesn't start, please send us a message on the Contact menu. Please tell us precisely, which radio broadcast doesn't work, with what browser, and what type of device you have tried to start it! We will try to answer your message as soon as possible on your given e-mail address!
