  1. Hi There, I found this page while googling for what the new CBC Radio1 stream links are. It seems about a week ago ( August 20, 2016 ) they broke or got rid of all the high-bandwidth stream URL-links and replaced them with something else ( CBC_R1_VIC_H.pls , for example. )

    I know the high bitrate streams are still there, I can play them from inside the TuneIn app on my Android and I-Phone phone apps, it seems to be a new 100 kbps AAC stream (?? odd codec choice, but OK) . Great quality, but I cannot play it on my Logictech Squeezebox radio or desktop computers at home! If you have any info on what the new direct URL links are to the Hi-Q CBC Radio1 streams, please let me know!

    1. Hi Stephan, perhaps you missed my update, but I noticed that as well and updated the post. CBC has consolidate music streams and offers only 1 endpoint now, and we are stuck at a bitrate of 48 Kbps. But it works in Windows Media player now!

  2. As of 7 September 2016, none of the CBC 1 .pls files are working, including those listed here; the only valid URL I've found is that terrible 48k stream. (Thanks for that, by the way.) I've also had no luck mining site html for a better one. If anybody finds a CBC stream URL that's 2016 quality, please post it here.

    On an editorial note, this shell game is embarrassing from our national network. Commercial stations pull this kind of malarkey as part of ill-conceived revenue-generating schemes, but why a government service would play hide-the-stream is beyond me.
