Internet Radios, Home Speaker Devices, and Third-Party Stream Hosting Services
First, to be clear, we do not EVER directly submit our stream URLs to internet radio manufacturers, home speaker manufacturers, or third-party stream hosting services. If you own an internet radio or speaker device manufactured by Sonos, Onkyo, or other, OR listen through the TuneIn app or in some way rely on TuneIn or iHeartMedia to listen to us, we cannot control your listening experience.

That said, we encourage you to listen to us through those devices and platforms, and will do our best to troubleshoot any issues you might have. BUT, it may take us longer to find the solution, since we’ll have to collect more information from you to find and contact the proper manufacturer or service provider.

Troubleshooting your internet radio, home speaker system, or third-party stream hosting service:
Issue: I have an internet radio/home speaker system and the stream is not working anymore.
Double-check that you still have internet. If you do, refresh your list of options and re-search for Iowa Public Radio News, Iowa Public Radio Classical, or Iowa Public Radio Studio One. You can also try searching by call letters. Alternatively, depending on your device, you can also try manually typing in the stream information, as follows:
     News: https://news-stream.iowapublicradio.org/News.mp3
     Classical: https://classical-stream.iowapublicradio.org/Classical.mp3
     Studio One: https://studioone-stream.iowapublicradio.org/StudioOne.mp3
If this doesn’t work, try entering the stream URL, changing HTTPS to HTTP.

Older internet radio/home speaker devices are not always able to play secured streams. If none of this works, e-mail us. When you do, provide the make and model of your internet radio. We may need to reach out to them or the stream provider they work with to troubleshoot the issue further.
