"Alexa, enable Rombalds Radio!" It's that easy to get our Alexa skill enabled on your Amazon 'Alexa' compatible device. Once enabled, just simply say "Alexa, start Rombalds Radio" and the radio station will start playing. You'll then be able to listen to Rombalds Radio anywhere you have an 'Alexa' device.
You might find that the easiest way to enable our skill is to click the link below from your smartphone to install it via your Alexa app. Once enabled, just say "Alexa start Rombalds Radio".
If you find that "Play Rombalds Radio" doesn't work then please try Start Rombalds Radio, Open Rombalds Radio or Launch Rombalds Radio.
Google Nest / Google Home
"OK Google, start Rombalds Radio!" (or "Hey Google, start Rombalds Radio" if you prefer! ) That should be all you need to say to hear us on your Google smart speaker. However, you may need to install the Rombalds Radio action on your Google Assistant smartphone app first. Our Google action will also enable you to listen via your phone or Android TV if you wish too!
Since we're also on TuneIn, you should be able to "Play Rombalds Radio" via your Google smart speaker. You may need to first enable TuneIn. Click here for a help guide for listening to the radio via Google smartspeakers.
Add TuneIn using the Sonos App for iOS or Android:
- From the Settings tab, tap Services.
- Under Music & Content, tap Add a Service.
- Select Radio by TuneIn from the list.
- Follow the on-screen prompts to add the service to Sonos.
- You will then be able to search for 'Rombalds Radio'
If Rombalds Radio doesn't come up as an option in TuneIn, you can manually add us via your Sonos App for iOS or Android:
- From the Browse tab, select Radio by TuneIn
- Tap My Radio Stations
- Tap the three dots in the top right and tap Add New Radio Station
- Copy and paste this link https://playoutonestreaming.com/proxy/rombalds?mp=/stream into the 'Streaming URL' box, enter Rombalds Radio as the 'Station Name' and tap OK.
You should just be able to just say "Hey Siri, play Rombalds Radio" and your HomePod will find our stream on TuneIn. However, if this doesn't work the best option is to use the Rombalds Radio iOS app on your iPhone or iPad:
- Open the Rombalds Radio iOS app
- Tap on the 'now playing' bar across the bottom so that the player becomes full screen
- Tap on the icon at the top right of your screen (rectangle with arrow in the bottom)
- From the pop up box, select the HomePod speaker or Apple TV device that you would like to listen to the radio on.
You can also listen to us via an internet-connected Smart TV, via Apple TV or Fire TV. To do this, you will need to install the TuneIn Smart TV app or the myTunerRadio Smart TV app. The process for doing this will depend on the model of TV that you have. Once you have installed TuneIn or myTunerRadio, just search for 'Rombalds Radio' and we should appear on your screen!

A final word about data use...
Listening to the radio online will use internet data. At home or work you should have your device connected to Wi-Fi for the best quality sound, and to make sure you don't use up your mobile data allowance.
Listening to our stream on 3G, 4G or 5G will use approximately 58MB per hour. So a standard 4GB monthly data allowance would be used up by 68 hours of radio listening, assuming you weren't also using it to watch videos or load other apps and webpages.
Rombalds Radio is not responsible for your data allowance - if you choose to listen to radio using your mobile phone's data connection you should ensure you have enough data or set limits on your account to stop you running up an unexpected bill!
