They (almost all sources of TV and radio) block that stuff based on the location. Surprised you can get it in Hawaii.

I only got a radio in Australia to work once in the US. Tried for days to get TV shows here from there using a free proxy.

Not sure how secure or safe it is but in theory you might be able to purchase a proxy account to then access it. I would only supply a pre-paid card to those places that has no information linked to your name.

Lastly you might know of someone in Canada or Hawaii (or any place that can access) that media and have them install a proxy.

A Pit Bull is like a gun you can pet. And there is no safety on it.

I'm in Canada - Alberta.

Have you tried tried all 3 of the live CBC streams here ? :

You can click on the blue change stream link for each one to change the individual stream.

Try the streams for other Canadian stations here:

Note that for me that's already set by default to display streams in Canada, without my having done anything - it may set that according to your country setting in Windows.
It may be auto set to some other country for you.
If you click on Region Search, you can have it display the streams in many countries - e.g. set it to Canada if you need to.

By the way, I can play streams in Australia there fine.

If you don't hear anything from the streams there....

From their FAQ:

What do I need to listen to

To listen to radio stations you need a plug-in. A plug-in is a program that is used by your browser (like Internet Explorer) for these extra options. The plug-in starts automatically when a website needs it. Most used plug-ins are Windows Media Player en Real Media Player. You can download these plug-ins for free by using the links underneath.

Where can I download the plug-ins?
•Download Windows Media player plug-in (PC)
•Download Real player plug-in (PC)

(those are both active links on the web site)

These two in my city / province supposedly have people all over the world listening to them...
You can select other stations or make a list of stations.

The site it's on - CIRK - Classic Rock, including Canadian Classic Rock, of course:

The site it's on - CKUA - Blues, Jazz, Alternative, etc., etc. :

If you don't hear anything from the stream there.....

NOTE the technical support link - it says you must have Java installed.

(Are you using the same computer, same Windows installation you used in Hawaii ?)

You can also send them a message there.

It has physical stations in two cities.
It broadcasts in both AM and FM.
16 FM frequencies. one AM frequency.

History excerpts...
