Trying to get BBC Radio 5 live streaming on my W595 here in the UK (O2 network) via the button on this page:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/5live/listen.mp

No joy so far, however

When I click the button from within the browser, Media Player fires up, I see "Connecting to the media server" followed shortly by "Connected to the media server" - but that's it. Nothing happens thereafter.

I'm confident O2 allows audio streaming because I can achieve it with 3rd party apps such as iRadio on the same phone and network. (Sadly, iRadio doesn't provide the BBC streams as far as I can tell.)

The BBC tells me it *should* work - the W595 is supported. So, any ideas where I'm going wrong?

Cheers.

@Greggy - Thanks for that. Duly signed up but resulted in the same symptom unfortunately. Having dug around a bit more, turns out that O2-UK *does* ordinarily block audio (and video) streaming (( Somehow I'd managed to circumvent that restriction with the iRadio 3rd-party app.

So I guess I'm looking at trying an alternate SIM without such a restriction, as you suggest. My only problem is that in all other respects, O2 works for me :-s

I haven't m8 - but then again I've not been looking!

Will give it a whirl, anyway, if it works off the O2 network (I live in a valley where O2's is the only useable signal, see). And that pricing certainly looks good!

Have now got the link, thanks, via Google.

Will report back once I'm up and running. Cheers again!

Cheers mate - all done

Yeah, the 3G signals pretty strong, fortunately. It's weird because all the other networks have a really poor presence in the area (although Voda isn't *too* bad)....

giffgaff SIM now up and running. (Pleased to find it works in an O2-locked phone, but perhaps that's as expected?)

And whatdyaknow ...

Streaming Radio 5 direct from the BBC - loud and clear!

My listed stations on yourmuze.fm - loud and clear!!

And SO much cheaper than O2 overall.

So greggy, heaps of kudos to you for the heads-up - can't believe I hadn't heard of it before! Many thanks....
