Frequently asked questions:

  • Question: I can't access the stream at all.
  • Answer: Our network may be down, or the stream location has changed (check this page for the current stream location). Also, some paranoid computer networks (i.e. work) don't allow you to access port 8000, which is the port our stream uses. Try from a different computer network.
  • Question: How come there is a delay, when comparing the audio stream to the radio signal at 102.7 FM?
  • Answer: Due to network latency, there will be always be a 10-30 second delay when listening to CFRO online.
  • Question: I've tried all the playlist options and I still can't access the stream.
