A question for users of the BBC iPlayer Radio app

iOS & iPadOS

after encountering a problem i had to delete and reinstall the bbc iplayer radio app. When tapping the menu button there is a list of main stations from to Cbeebies. I can't remember how to find the list of local bbc stations to add my selection to the station list. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

I am guessing you want to see a list of all the BBC local stations. If this is so, then you need to do the following and you don't need to press the menu button.

Open the BBC iPlayer Radio app.

Then, swipe with three fingers right to left or left to right, that doesn't matter. What you are looking for though is the BBC local radio section which is located next to Radio 1.

When you have found this, by default, it will tell you what your nearest BBC local station is. Swipe with one finger past this info but then you should find another button which when pressed, should bring up a list of all the other BBC local stations.

Hope this helps.

Glad to be of help. This is one of my favourite apps. Any BBC locals you listen to will be added to the list of stations when you press the menu button. I haven't figured out how to remove them from the list so I guess you would need to reinstall the app to start again. I should have said that it would find your nearest local station if you have location services enabled.
