BBC Radio 1.8

Superseded by version 2.2.

Just a quick update to add Five Live Sports Xtra UK – for coverage of sports events for which the BBC doesn’t have international broadcast rights. I’m guessing this station is only available to UK IP addresses.

Anyway, this now means that test match coverage is available for cricket fans. Get it here!

Unfortunately, the widget still won’t run on Intel Macs – Real Player is PPC-native, so the plugin (which BBC Radio widget uses to decode audio) can’t run inside Intel-native apps such as Dashboard. Hopefully Real will sort it out soon!
Real sorted it out! (And it only took 9 months…). You’ll need RealPlayer 10.1 if you want to listen on an Intel Mac.
