Please note that the stream will play for a couple of seconds, go off and then back on again.

When you press the play button above, the channel will load in a popup, make sure popups are allowed in your browser.

If you are using a mobile phone or tab, tilt your screen horizontally so that you can view the full stream.

In the top right there is a full screen button, you may need to drag the popup window to the right to find it.

You can close the popup window by either pressing your escape key “ESC” or pressing the “X” button on the bottom right of the popup window.

If you hear the channel sound before or after closing the popup, this is because some devices autoplay the stream. Simply click the play button to cancel the autoplay stream and the channel will load in the popup window or change channel. If you still hear the sound and cannot view the channel, refresh the page and press the play button again.
