    Surely I can't be the only one who thinks it would be cool to have your Ipod touch sitting in a dock in your house, streaming live radio?

    I have had a play with iRadio, and it is very good, but finding anything specific is a bit difficult, and I couldn't find any of the standard BBC stations, 5Live in particular.

    Anyone know of, or heard of a likely release of Realplayer or WMP for the touch?

    Nope... doubt that'll happen... Maybe VLC player, but I really can't see Real or Microsoft seeing a big enough market to spend the time and $ to port their players to the iPod Touch. Heck MS doesn't even port their player to the Mac anymore...

    I believe I remember that you can stream through Orb.

    Forced to use iTunes to subscribe to 40 BBC podcasts

    I'd love streaming BBC, as well. I currently just have iTunes subscribed to most of the shows I regularly listen to. It doesn't get me the insightful banter about how ManU will kick Chelsea butt or the other way around.

    I do get Farming Today, Funny Bits and Chris Moyles, tho.

    There still should be Real streaming support.

    It would be a good feature, although this currently isn't possible.

    FlyTunes might offer BBC stations under their "News" category in their iPod touch player.
