Radioplayer - Free UK Radio

The official UK Radio app, designed in partnership with the BBC. 500 UK stations and thousands of podcasts and catchup shows, so you can play radio everywhere you go, with no login or registration required, and no extra in-app advertising. Now includes new digital channels like the Virgin stations, and Scala Radio.

Find your favourite stations faster, in our new app design. Control your listening more easily, with our expanding playbar. Discover new sounds, stations and shows – and see at-a-glance when new episodes are available.

Stream stations, shows, and podcasts on all your devices, with Google Cast, Android Auto, Android Wear, and Bluetooth support. Also now compatible with Smart Device Link, for cars. Radioplayer sounds great on speakers, because we offer hi-fi streams direct from broadcasters, which other radio apps can't access.

Take radio to bed, with our Alarm Clock and Sleep Timer. Play your favourites with one tap, using Easy Mode. This is the definitive UK radio app for Android phones and tablets.

All BBC stations, and hundreds more great British radio streams, on your Samsung, Sony, LG, or HTC device. Tune in to live streams of radio, or browse our on-demand programmes and podcasts, including hundreds of shows from the BBC and beyond.

This radio app has everything from news and sport - to pop, rock, indie, dance, jazz, soul, and classical. It's perfect for live World Cup football, Premier League football, Ashes cricket, Wimbledon tennis, F1 at the weekend, Festivals over the summer, and Christmas radio stations. It’s the perfect music app, a great podcast player, and it’s ideal for football live streams too.
