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 TunnelBear, a free vpn.

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

  1. Seems the Logitech CBC app is broken… all CBC Radio 2 streams are “Temporarily Unavailable” and have been for months. Adding CBC’s own URLs to Logitech’s Favorites produces the same result.

    • Philip, I can’t comment on the Logitech CBC app, since I don’t use it. I also don’t use Radio 2 streams. I have CBC Kitchener-Waterloo Radio One set as a favourite on my Squeezebox. I just checked it, and it’s working fine.

      Have you tried any of the streams from the CBC page I linked to, above?

    • Primo is a Grace Digital/ECOXGEAR product. The Squeezebox is by Logitech.

      I do not use either an NAS or a RAID. I don’t stream any music, so I’m at a loss if you’re looking for assistance with that.

      My Logitech Squeezebox and the Grace Digital Primo use wireless connections.
