(Pocket-lint) - Sonos users can now listen to BBC Sounds content on their speakers.

The BBC has worked with the brand to add its podcast and radio streaming service to the Sonos S2 app in preview.

Click on it and link your Sonos account to your BBC account.

Streaming BBC content is free and it includes live streams of all of the corporation's radio channels. In addition, there are music bundles, such as Christmas Hits and other playlists created by presenters and guests.

From firm favourites to new discoveries, we’re giving our listeners even easier access to our brilliant selection of radio, music mixes and podcasts," said the controller of BBC Sounds, Jonathan Wall.
