CBC Radio One and Two new internet stream URLs

The CBC in its infinite wisdom has seen to changing their stream URL addresses as of August 25, 2016. Since I listen using a Logitech Squeezebox and a Grace Digital Primo, I was fortunate to find this page, where anyone who cares can add a CBC Radio stream from the interwebs:

http://www.cbc.ca/radio/includes/stream.html

With the Primo, log in and go to the My Streams page. Add the stream(s) of your choice. Unplug the radio for a reset, plug it back in, and your stream will be located in My Stuff / My Streams.

I’m currently in discussions with Grace Digital/ECOXGEAR about adding the streams. It appears they may be geographically restricted, as in, if you don’t have a Canadian IP, you’re out of luck.

If that’s the case, you might try Windscribe, a Canadian VPN with a free plan. Look for a discount code online. I picked one up for Windscribe’s lifetime subscription for U$49.00. I’m so happy with Windscribe that I can heartily recommend it.

The Logitech Squeezebox appears to have already installed the new streams.
