Looking at what I can see about it online it implies that it does not
down load BBC radio. Am I missing the point?
It used to be able to download pretty much any programme. At BBC
insistence, this was disabled. Now it can be used to manage any
podcasts (BBC or others) that have an RSS feed, which it seems to
do fairly efficiently. Sadly, it seems that RSS is no longer
favourite, and some things outside the BBC that I would like to
hear do not offer this facility.
My wants, being based around my desktop, and having no real use
for mobile access, are clearly different from the mean these
days. The new "BBC Sounds" (1) (2) doesn't really attract me at
Instead of having to go in search of stuff to listen to, I simply
want to subscribe to programmes, have them appear in a list on my
PC, and work through them as I like.
I can appreciate that for reasons of rights management the BBC
can't make all programmes, especially those with music,
available. For my part, I find that I rarely seek out what I
cannot get automatically downloaded, so don't listen at all. They
have effectively lost me as a listener to these programmes.
(1) Surely a product of Perfect Curve.
(2) If they are so keen to have a one-stop shop, why isn't Sound
accessible on a smart TV?
