TuneIn Radio App

Recently having trouble with my TuneIn Radio app and some streams (ESPN)

Greetings all -

I should preface this by saying that I listen to podcasts and audio (radio streams) ALL day. I have the TuneIn Radio Pro app and I use it all the time. I have a bunch of Favorites bookmarked, etc, but I listen to a lot of sportstalk radio, esp. ESPN radio and TalkSPORT Live.

On Thursday, June 12th, I was listening to ESPNs coverage of the World Cup and all was well. Later that night, I was listening to TalkSPORT radio. Then on Friday, June 13th, my ESPN Radio Stream AND TalkSPORT Live streams won't work (it says "not supported in my country"). I live in Canada.

I have an iPhone 4 (running iOS6) and an iPad Air (running iOS7) and I get the same result on both devices (so I am pretty sure it isn't the device).

I tried the typical things - killing the app, removing the app, adding it again to my phone, iPad, etc, and still nothing works. I also have the most updated version of TuneIn Radio Pro.

I have emailed them in the past (over other minor issues) and they have taken a LONG time to get back to me.

Just wondering if anyone else is having this issue (esp. outside of the US). I know it doesn't sound like a big deal, but I listen to both of these stations a lot, and I am really missing them (esp. during the World Cup).

Can anyone help or offer suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, I agree. I know in the past, talkSPORT has blocked me from listening when they are broadcasting Premier League matches, but as soon as the game is over, I can listen to their other coverage.

For example, in the evenings, I like to listen to Extra Time when I go to bed (its their overnight sports talk program). I can't even listen to that anymore (And I know they are not broadcasting games). I just tried it on my PC - I can listen to the feed from their homepage, but can't access it on the TuneIn Radio Pro app (which is an issue as I am not around my PC when I am listening to the world cup games.
