How To Listen

There are lots of ways you can hear Southdown Radio – whether you’re at home, at work or on the move. Just choose your preferred device from the list below for more information and easy instructions.

You can now hear Southdown Radio on DAB+ Digital Radio all over the greater Brighton & Hove area.

You may first need to retune or rescan your DAB+ radio for new channels, but this should only take a minute or two and in most cases you won’t lose any of your preset channels.

Check your user manual for more detailed instructions but usually you should select the Menu button on your set and look for either the Retune or Rescan Channels option. Alternatively, your DAB+ radio may have a dedicated Retune or Rescan Channels button.

Once the retune is complete, scroll through your new channel list to select either Southdwn or SOUTHDOWN RADIO and then add us to your preset favourites!

If you can’t find us listed on your DAB+ radio this could either be because you’re just outside our transmission area or because your digital radio is not equipped to receive DAB+ services.  In which case you can still hear us on smart speaker, online or via Mobile App. For more details please see the other options listed below.

To listen via Amazon Echo (Alexa) simply say, “Alexa… play Southdown Radio”.

To listen via your Google smart speaker device, just say: “Hey Google… play Southdown Radio”.

You can now find Southdown Radio on the official UK Radioplayer app – available free from both the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Just download the app for your watch, phone or tablet; search for Southdown Radio and add us to your favourites so you can tune in whenever and wherever you like!

And if your car stereo supports Bluetooth, Apple Car Play or Android Auto you can also use the Radioplayer app to listen to us on the move.
