Internet radio explained
Internet radios use the same wireless technology as portable computers to access radio stations from across the world, listen when you want with catch-up radio, and enjoy a great selection of podcasts – all on a device which looks, feels and sounds like a radio.
What’s more, internet radios are much more energy efficient than listening on a computer, or through your TV.
With an internet radio you can enjoy the following great content away from your PC.
- A world of global, national and local radio stations – some familiar and some brand new. Whatever you’re passionate about, there’s a station to match.
- Your favourite shows when you want them from broadcasters, like the BBC, who have a catch-up service.
- Thousands of podcasts available anytime, including comedy, sports chat, current affairs, language learning, kids stories, and much more.
- Music streamed from a Wi-Fi enabled computer or network storage device.
The vast majority of internet radios also include digital radio and FM, meaning that you get the best of all worlds. Some internet radios, like the PURE Sensia, also offer features like a colour touchscreen, and apps such as Twitter, Picasa, Weather, RSS feeds and Facebook. PURE internet radios also update themselves automatically, downloading and adding product features as soon as they become available.
