What’s Internet Radio?
The terminology is potentially misleading. After all we say ‘ i'm going to watch the telly tonight’ but actually we’re looking at a multimedia screen. TV is video streaming and so Radio is really- audio streaming.
The confusion is not helped by Pandora and Spotify referring to their playlist services as Radio when they’re really sophisticated Juke Boxes. However, if the term Radio is good enough for Apple it's good enough for us.
How Do I Get Internet Radio?
Accessing high-quality Internet Radio is a lot easier than finding DAB or FM. All you need is an Internet connection and “connectivity” is swiftly enveloping the planet.
Just a few years ago free Wi-Fi hotspots were a rarity. Today there are almost 47 million free Wi-Fi hotspots in the world- one for every 153 people. By the end of 2017 there’ll be an incredible 350 million free Wi-Fi hotspots-one for every 20 people on the planet.
So, with the huge expansion of Wi-Fi you can easily select Internet Radio stations on all your personal devices- mobile, tablet, laptop, desktop, TV and Internet Radio-almost anywhere on the planet.
