Can't get BBC radio live iPlayer live feeds locally via PlusNet

Hello,
I can't seem to get the iPlayer live BBC radio streams when connected to the net via PlusNet, although I can if connected via Nildram or NewNet.
The BBC radio iPlayer feeds in question are the high quaility asx ones and are restricted to UK users only. My current best guess is that the BBC seem to think that PlusNet are not based in the UK, as the stream appears to connect but is then refused.
Can anyone else on PlusNet receive any of these feeds via their local browser?

Thanks.

When clicking on the links they first of all brought up 'Internet Explorer cannot open up the web page' then later they opened up but were completely blank.

They should open up Windows Media Player or equivalent.

Mac opens them in a new tab with a QT plug in.
All still working.

Re: Can't get BBC radio live iPlayer live feeds locally via PlusNet

Thanks for all these replies. I am entirely flummoxed now.
I have fired up my laptop and guess what... the BBC playlists work.... however, on my main machine the BBC ones above still do not work......  but other ASX playlists do.
Makes no sense to me at all.

All work for me with XP and Firefox but still can't get it to work in Vista - the problem appears to be with Windows Media player
Edit - one major difference Media Player 10 on XP 11 on Vista
