Add Custom Audio Streams?
« on: June 21, 2015, 12:09:03 pm »
I just got my Echo..  I've found lots of cool things, but also hit some walls.

I was hoping I could use it to listen to baseball games.  But, apparently those are not stream-able.  My local station streams advertisements when the ball game is on (what a great user experience, by the way..  'I know what you're looking for, but I'll annoy you instead to earn a penny or two').   It's not Amazon's fault, but now I'm looking for alternatives.

So, my question is:  Is there any way to define custom streaming URLs, so I can point it at my local system which has a USB radio tuner?  I can work out the details of the stream format/protocol, if there is a way to hook it in.  But, I haven't been able to find one.

Is this something you could do by using the ability to bluetooth stream from a device to Echo?   Or stream from a device on the same network to the Echo?  I do not have my Echo yet (on the way) so I am just going by what has been stated in literature.  Seems like you should be able to set it up in one of those ways though.
