So when I listen to Michigan Basketball or Football on my iPhone I usually use iHeart Radio, specifically WOOD Radio under Grand Rapids. I attempted to do so today but I got the Rush Limbaugh show instead and since Michigan plays another afternoon game tomorrow I'm anticipating the same to happen tomorrow as well. Did anyone else face this problem today and are there any solutions to this?
iHeart Radio Stream
ESPN 96.1 carried it today. Maybe they will tomorrow as well.
Is that under Grand Rapids as well?
Yeah it should be.
Yeah, I'd say Rush is a problem. WOOD is usually my radio go to for Michigan games. Can you use BTN2Go? Better to watch than listen.
MGOBLUE streamed the audio today. Will that not work on your iPhone browser?
No, mgoblue's stupid Flash player doesn't work on iOS or Android.
I have a Droid X from 2010 that streams MGoBlue and flash just fine. Only iOS doesn't support flash.
2010 was three years ago. Android hasn't supported Flash for at least a year now (I think 4.0+).
Android jellybean is where support for Flash offically ended. There were too many security issues that Flash created and Adobe saw the writing on the wall and subsequently halted any further mobile development/support for 4.1. You can always try to get around it by installing a version of flash onto a jellybean running device through an apk, but as the popular meme says:
On a related note, I believe Mgoblue.com has a paid version of their app that includes streaming audio and video.
Yeah, but this transition phase during which so many websites and content providers haven't switched over to HTML5 yet kind of sucks.
It works on my iPhone 4 just fine. Today I used a radio station out if Wisconsin.
Try WTKA on iHeart. It works great and I'm sure they will have the game on.
I expected the game to be on WOOD radio but nada. Switched to WTKA app on my iPhone and was able to listen to parts of the game while at work.
Whenever I try to listen to a game on the WTKA app, it just plays endless commercials. Wassup wit dat?
what you mean. That happens pretty much all the time excpet for today game and when I listen to the morning show, Michigan Insider.
You could also download the iPhone app called Big Ten Connect.
The only advantage of going to work at 4:30am tomorrow is that I will be home in time to watch the game.
Yeah, I was expecting to have to listen to WOOD which I normally do for games (bball and hockey) but my iHeart app was selected to WTKA and it started playing right away. Odd and not really sure why today was different other than it being the BTT. I basically just try stations until I find one....
Anyway, since the new year they haven't played any games. Mgoblue has a list of other Michigan Sports Network affiliates and one of them should be on iheart,
For those in Metro Detroit and/or those who might be stuck in a car / meeting at the time of tipoff, WWJ (950 on the AM dial) carries the games locally as well. There's also this as well, on their website, as they are also hve a stream - http://detroit.cbslocal.com/tag/iheart-radio/
