How to tune in to Cheshire’s MIX56

todayMonday 4 December

share close

We’re Online, Smart Speaker, via the MIX56 App and on DAB digital radio across South Manchester and Cheshire

Cheshire’s MIX56 broadcasts 24 hours a day from studios in the centre of Lymm.  Here’s the main ways that you can tune in.

Via Smart Speaker

You’ll find us on your Amazon Echo device.  Simply say “Alexa, play MIX56” and we should start streaming straight away.

You may need to download the skill for your smart speaker.  You can find it here.

Online Listening

You can listen anytime via our website MIX56.  If you are using a PC/Laptop and have a Wi-Fi connection, click on the hamburger menu at the bottom of the screen and you can select our HQ stream.

If using a mobile device or on mobile data, you’ll get our standard 128kb stream.

The MIX56 App

Download our new App now for the easiest and most convenient way to tune in!

The Android App is available at the Google Play Store.

The iOS App is available at the Apple Store. Once you have the App, you can also listen via Apple CarPlay.

Our App will automatically play the HQ stream if you are on Wi-Fi.

Online Radio Directories

We’re not on Tune-In as they are not currently accepting submissions from radio stations outside the US at present.

We are however on a whole host of far better platforms including:

Manual Configuration

Some internet radios (including in-car internet radios) may use other radio directories that are no longer supported or updated.  Also, some home systems including SONOS or BOSE require you to manually set up a radio feed.  These are the links to our direct feeds:

HD Stream:  https://playoutonestreaming.com/proxy/lymm?mp=/hq

STANDARD Stream:  https://playoutonestreaming.com/proxy/lymm?mp=/stream

DAB Digital Radio

We’re on DAB+ digital radio as CHESHIRE’S MIX56 across South Manchester and Cheshire on the following Multiplexes:

  • Warrington & Runcorn
  • East Cheshire
  • Stockport
  • Mid Cheshire

Don’t forget you’ll find us listed as CHESHIRE’S MIX56 (rather than “MIX56”) on your radio display!

Special note for LYMM:  Unfortunately, Lymm has very poor coverage on DAB at present.  You may receive signals from all of the MUX transmitters but reception will be patchy and unreliable.  Only certain transmitters synchronise – so the programme may “jump” or sound out of sequence from time to time.  This will be more noticeable if listening in the car and on the move.

This is out of our control, but we are working with the Warrington & Runcorn MUX operator to find a solution.  With the help of our MP, Andy Carter, we are currently in the process of making an appeal to OFCOM to have a repeater transmitter installed in the village.  This would greatly improve reception.  We’ll keep you updated.
