How to Listen
HRB’s main audience is on the wards of the hospital.
Patients can tune into the station free of charge on their bedside terminals. It is necessary to register first, but there is NO CHARGE to do this or listen to the radio.
You will be prompted to register a terminal when you try and “login” with the button in the top right hand corner of the screen. You will be prompted for your name and date of birth. You will be using your Hospedia terminal to order your meals so you will need to do this at some point but a member of staff should be able to help you.
Once you are logged in, press the “Entertainment” button and then “Radio”. HRB should be the station that appears automatically. If not, use the arrows either side of the station name to go through the channels until you find it.
The arrows on the right hand side are the volume controls.
If the name of the stations and these controls disappear from the screen, you need to press the bottom right hand button on the screen next to “main menu” to get it back.
You will usually need headphones to listen to us. Ask a member of staff for a pair or watch out for one of us when we visit to collect your request. Some wards allow use of the loud speaker to listen without headphones, but all terminals automatically have their loudspeaker turned off at 9pm so you will need headphones if you want to be a late night listener!
You can also listen to HRB online via the “Listen Live” link at the top of every page of our website.
You can listen on your phone or mobile device using the TuneIn app – search for Hospital Radio Basingstoke.
You can also ask your smart speaker to find us or listen on an internet radio.
On your computer or laptop, you can open our webstream using any media player. Use either of the following:
Please note that our target audience is still very much patients at Basingstoke and North Hants Hospital, so we don’t play requests for anyone listening outside of the hospital. If you know someone who is a patient though, feel free to contact us with a request for them – use the “Contact HRB” link at the top of this page.
