BBC World Service does NOT impose geo-filtering;
you get the same stream globally!
And they still stream only via RTMP or AppleHLS
(no AdobeHDS, nor MPEG-DASH).
Some months ago, both the "Listen Live" &
"On-Demand" WS streams were only @64kbps HE-AACv1,
but they got, in autumn last year, the "Audio Factory"
treatment and are now both available at two qualities,
96 & 48 kbps HE-AACv1!
