I have been listening to a few
stations for the last couple months through my google home device
and it worked well. For about the past week or two it stopped. I am
listening from Toronto. Have I been geoblocked? It works fine if i
listen through the website. How do we fix this?
The problem stems from the way
Google suddenly stopped properly translating many stations from the
TuneIn Database. The TuneIn radio guide is what Google Home uses to
bring the stations to your devices.
Our reply from TuneIn: "Hi,
We are aware of issues with Google Home's management of our data
feed. While we currently do not have an eta, we are working with
Google to resolve this issue with the highest priority.
We apologize for the inconvenience."
In the meantime, there are two temporary resolutions.
The first one is to call out the full station
name. For example:
"Hey Google, play C-R-I-K FM, The Lynx
Classic Hits."(try adding 'from
TuneIn' if you still don't get the

- Click on Voice Command
- In the box, type in "Play The Lynx Classic Hits"
- Click Done
- Now choose what this routine will do by clicking + Add Action
- Scroll down to 'Try Adding your own'
- In the add action box, type in "CRIK FM the Lynx Classic Hits".
- Click Save
It should now show up as a routine on your
list but can take up to 15 minutes to work properly.
You can create routines for all the stations by substituting
'Classic Hits' with:
We hope this helps. We apologize and appreciate your patience while
Google sorts out the issue.
I absolutely love your Radio Station. I listen
to the CRIK Classic Rock station all the time using my ROKU music player. I'm
interested in programming it for ALL your stations. What are the link addresses?
I'd like to have the addresses for the 192kbyte quality streams instead of the
96kbyte streams. The current station I'm listening to has been programmed with
192kbyte stream. Your station is great! I just hooked my friend up with a ROKU
and immediately programmed the device with your station. It's so good to be able
to listen to such a huge variety of classic rock I just can't get anywhere else.
Thanks Greg! Here are the 'Lynx' to all the stations you and
other people can program into their ROKU or any other players capable of playing
