But! If you have a Freeview TV, try Channel 277 - UK RADIO PORTAL. The page may take some time to load, but when it has, you'll see a selection of radio channels listed. Just look out for Boom Radio in turquoise and orange - click on that and it will play shortly. Our sister station Boom Light is not available in this way.
On Sky Q or Sky Glass, you can find us via the Radioplayer app. From 'home', scroll down to Apps. Scroll down to Music apps. Find the Radioplayer app and click on it. Search fopr Boom Radio in thr A-Z list. Click on the heart to make it a favourite station so you'll find it easily next time!
