Old Media. New Tricks.

Archive for September 2008

I have already said the iPhone could be radio’s saviour – not it’s killer.  Here’s proof.  Astral Media has a mobile website with the stream of all it’s radio stations easily accessible with a few clicks.

Here’s a video showing how to bookmark the site to your iPhone desktop and access any of the streams.

The mobile web address is http://iphone.7821k.com.

The best part of this feature is it not only enables radio listening on a device that it was previously unavailable (iPods) but it breaks the borders down for radio listeners. No longer do you have to listen to Vancouver radio because you’re in Vancouver. Have a favorite talk show in Ottawa, Calgary or Toronto? Now they’re accessible via the Astral Media MobileWeb.
