- If the request is not properly answered, try to add 'on TuneIn' or “on iHeartRadio” to the query. For example: 'Play BBC Radio on TuneIn', or "Play ESPN Radio on iHeartRadio".
- If the provided station is inaccurate when asking for frequency, try to add the name of a nearby city. For example: 'Play 102.6 FM London'
