I have been trying in vain to down load the BBc radio app. (sounds app ) I have down loaded it on to the cloud but when checking on compatibility I got the message below. I contacted he support and was told it wasn't compatible on the fire stick , Why not???
It's not just Amazon devices that are affected but only the BBC can give you a definitive reason as to why the BBC iPLayer Radio app no longer works on many devices.
It's a quite complicated issue and not one that I can explain easily so I'm not going to try. I suggest you Google for BBC Audio Factory (the new platform) or go to the BBC Website and look for "In Touch" which has a podcast where the reasons for moving away from the old platform is discussed in some depth.
