Hi std,
Tunein was trying to sell me a Premium account — that’s why I thought I would have to pay. I have a free account now.
“a little bit tricky”!?!? How is anyone supposed to know how to do that? (no need to answer that)
I am very encouraged by the fact that you can play KPFA (not only because it is a great station!) because I still cannot get it to play, even though it is now in MyPresets under Internet Radio like you said. There are 3 non-commercial stations in our area that we like to listen to: KPFA, KQED (San Francisco 88.5FM) and KALW (San Francisco 91.7FM). All other stations — local, or Los Angeles or Boston — play. There must be something those 3 have in common that is a problem. I hope we can solve it! I paste the information from SBS Settings below in the hopes it might give you an idea.
Here’s something I noticed about KPFA: If I listen to it on TuneIn, the URL is , but when I am in SBS and save it from MyPresets to Favorites, the URL is,ogg,mp3,wmpro,wma,wmvoice&partnerId=16&serial=f4276c20f3bb41fead043053822287ea — I don’t understand why it is different.
However, I looked at a station that DOES play, and again compared the TuneIn URL to the Favorites URL, and it is similar – So maybe that doesn’t mean anything?
