How do I get Alexa to turn on Radio 4 at 7pm?
Enable the BBC skill and supply your BBC credentials.
Say: "Alexa, Ask the BBC to play Radio 4."
But not sure it can be done in an Alexa routine.
The BBC have kindly withdrawn from Tunein which allowed many Alexa features. You can only play BBC stations on an echo using the BBC skill.
There are BBC blogs about it, of which this one is the newest:- https://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/aboutthebbc/entries/ba37d6b5-59fd-470d-9da2-dec1b45b8bd5 on which people are commenting on the changes.
On this blog BBC claim Amazon are going to allow skills like this BBC skill to be included in Alexa routines to allow alarms
Classic FM and Virgin Radio UK no longer work for me in routines, along with the loss of the BBC stations.
When the routine plays, Alexa says 'can't find [station name] on TuneIn'.
If I say 'Alexa, play [station name]' it plays the stations .... from Tunein.
Something's broken somewhere, and it's not just due to the arrogance of the BBC.
