For radio, grab TuneIn Radio from http://apps.goodereader.com/android-...apps-3/?did=83

The lack of a GPS in the Arc causes it to be flagged as incompatible, but it works perfectly for me with just coarse (wi-fi) location detection. The app works perfectly for me, even correctly detecting the local stations (might not detect properly if you're the type to route things through proxies).

For UK news, there should be plenty of sources you can read through Google Currents. (if not, checking the various web sites you normally go to for news to see if they have apps is probably the best thing to do).

If the stock video player isn't good enough, you might try VLC Beta (from VideoLAN). It should also do you for music (though I'm lazy and stick with Google Music for the latter, since I don't need any special features beyond shuffle-all :P).
