If your not using Tvheadend, then you can use my stand-alone NZ Radio Add-on from HERE


Navigation to TvHeadend -> Configuration -> DVB Inputs -> Networks
Click Add
Select "IPTV Automatic Network"

Fill in below two fields

Network Name: Radio
URL: http://files.matthuisman.nz/nzradio.m3u8

Click "Create".

Navigate to Muxes
Every radio station get's it's own MUX and you will see them being scanned in
Once they all show "OK", move on to the next step.

Navigate to "Services"
Click on Network column to sort all the "Radio" network items to the top
Highlight all the Radio items and select "Map Selected" -> "Map Selected Services"

Make sure "Create type-based tags" is selected and then select "Map Services"

Once the mapping is completed, navigate to Configuration -> Channel / EPG -> Channels
You will see all your new radio channels listed.
You can now edit them as you please (Rename, give channel numbers, delete)

They will appear in KODI under  a new "Radio" main menu item.
You can record them etc, just like you would with a normal Tvheadend channel.


Feel free to request other stations in the comments below.
Also let me know if you find any higher quality streams.

The streams require ffmpeg to be installed on the device running Tvheadend.
I have tested these working when using LibreELEC Tvheadend server.
