Problems playing LDC Radio on Amazon Echo devices
We’re aware that some customers are experiencing issues playing LDC Radio when using Amazon Echo devices. For example, sometimes the station or show isn’t found, doesn’t play, or the stream drops out.
We’re looking into this with Amazon. In the meantime, here are things that you can try:
- First, check that the Alexa language settings for your device are set to English (UK). Check and update your language settings
- Also, it is worth checking that your device is using the latest software. Check and update your Alexa device software
