HOW TO LISTEN TO A1RADIO
Thank you for your interest in A1Radio! The following steps should help you to tune in.
Using Your Internet Browser
Click on either of the two listen links (in the grey bar) at the top of any page on this site. The links are in descending order of quality, as follows:
Super HD - 320kbps and High - 128kbps. On the listen page you will also find a link to our Low - 48kbps stream.
The stream with lower bitrate is of lower quality but is useful if you have a slower broadband connection, or are listening on mobile devices when out and about, when you may be using a limited mobile data package. A separate window will open with the player built in which you can use to listen to our stream.
If you experience problems with the stream such as stuttering, you can switch to the lower bandwidth stream by clicking the link in the bottom right corner of the player.
Viewing Live Video
Some presenters will stream a live webcam with their show! If you would like to view this, click on the "Video Stream" button at the top of the page in the "Listen" box. Not all presenters offer this, but you can still listen from the page even if there is no video available at the time.
For licensing reasons, the station is not linked to the video stream and there may be a delay between the two of a few seconds (i.e. a presenter's voice may not be in sync with his or her mouth!). Only the High (128kbps) stream is offered on this page due to the extra bandwidth requirements of the video being carried.
Using A Smartphone or Tablet
If you are listening on a smartphone, the 'LISTEN' icon is found at the bottom of the page. This will open up a separate window upon which you can choose from the listening options available.
You can find A1Radio on TuneIn Radio, which is a free app available from the Apple App Store and Google Play. Opt for the paid app and you will be able to record shows too! Simply download the app, select the Browse feature and enter A1Radio into the search.
From there you can listen to A1Radio and add it to your Presets.
You can also save this link in your Favourites, for fast access to the stream.
