CBC Stream URLs ended/stopped working/unavailable as of Aug 2019

CBC Stream Page no longer exists http://www.cbc.ca/radio/includes/stream.html 

CBC Audience Services (CBC) August 20, 2019

Thanks for reaching out to CBC.

CBC is no longer offering direct URLs for streaming as of late. Sorry to disappoint.

Moving forward CBC Streaming URLs (http://www.cbc.ca/radio/includes/stream.html) will only be provided by a third party like Google Home, Grace, Sirius or TuneIn. If you are using these third party devices, know that we have had issues with the stream over the last week and are currently working on repairing them with the aforementioned providers.

In the meantime, you can listen live to CBC Radio One and CBC Music on our web based streaming here: cbc.ca/listen or on the LISTEN Beta Testing App.

All the best,

CBC Audience Relations
