Satellite Listening in the UK:
For listeners in the UK, please understand that the Hotbird system is different than the popular SKY Digital system.
NPR Worldwide would very much like to be on SKY Digital for 24 hours a day, but at this time, the costs for two European channels are prohibitive. However, please note that NPR is available for a few hours a day on SKY Digital via our partners in London, the World Radio Network.
WRN can be heard on SKY Digital EPG Channel 0122. For more information, please visit the WRN Schedule page.
