BBC Radio New URL Streams 2015

bbc-radioBBC has decided not to support direct Windows Media Player URL streams (The announcement). forcing people to use their iPlayer website/app or the tunein radio app.
While in fact, it seems like they keep providing the same service in a different format under a new url addresses which are not public.
I managed to find all the new url addresses to the new streams, making it possible to listen to all these radio stations on itunes, windows media player, VLC and any other app you’d like.. and here they are:
