    I want to listen to BBC radio 5 Live on my iPhone as it's the best UK sports & news channel out there. Is there anyway of doing this?

    Thanks in advance

    Try navigating to the iplayer site on WiFi

    Apparently you should be able to stream some content, not sure about radio

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/

    THere used to be a link to BETA BBC iPlayer for iPhone, but you will have to see if the beta is still running

    Radio is available on the 'full blown' iPlayer now but unfortunately because the BBC use realplayer as their broadcast standard for radio it's not available on iPhone ..... sadly

    Yes, impressive and useful.

    Could anyone advise me on how to 'resume' after navigating away from the page to do something else - or is that kind of multitasking asking too much?

    bbc 5 live
    ooTunes will let you listen to bbc 5 live (and lots of other stations). It's $20, kinda a pain to setup, but if you're outside the UK it's the only option for live bbc.

    If it's on shoutcast, you can use FlyCast. You can run it in the background so you can use other apps & it has a web browser built into it. It's free in the app store.

    Unfortunately, the BBC is not on shoutcast. FlyCast sounds interesting... but I'm pretty sure running in the background is against apple's SDK rules, so if it DOES do that, it will be interesting to see if it is pulled from the store.

    Try the FStream App, it's free and I managed to get Radio 2 to work. Needs Wifi though.

    Check out BBC Radio iPhone Streams

    No it doesnt. FStream will work over 3G, I listen to the football commentary on Radio 5 Live whilst at games that way.
