Three of my "Favorite" stations now get the "HTTP 403 [forrbidden]" error response. They all still show up under the "Local" tab. I am in the 94903 zip code. The stations are KDFC, KGO, and KCBS.

Visiting the station's website and clicking on a button that would give me the option of choosing Xiialive as the player didn't work for KGO, and KCBS - they didn't offer the opportunity. What else can be done?

Hey, thanks for letting us know. So we have seen that some stations are trying to block other apps from streaming them. This is very unfortunate for everyone. However, there are some things you can try to fool them...


Change the User Agent under Settings->Stream. Change it to custom and copy/paste this into it, excluding the quotation marks:

"Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_12_1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/54.0.2840.98 Safari/537.36"


Unfortunately, we can't remove those stations or update them since we use 3rd party directories... :/
