This is driving me mad. After many weeks of successfully playing streaming radio from the BBC's iPlayer on my iPad, it has ceased working for no apparent reason. I thought it was either a temporary glitch at the BBC end, or something easily fixed by clearing the cache or something.
So far, no to both. Attempts to play any radio programme result in a "programme unavaible" message, although TV works as well as it ever did - which wasn't great, but it works - sort of! It's only the radio that's completely kaput.
Google doesn't turn up any recent relevant hits, so probably reasonable to assume there's not a general outage, and the problem is specific to me. Otherwise other users would be talking about it.
But I haven't done any recent software updates, or indeed changed anything, that I'm aware of. It still fails whether I navigate directly to the iPlayer via Safari, or use the BBC's pointless little app, that just puts a front end on it.
I can get it working on my Nokia N8 phone, so specifically an iPad issue it seems.
