You can find a huge number of radio stations to listen to online covering every genre of music imaginable, and every topic under the sun. Being able to use the internet to listen to radio stations means that you are able to tune in to broadcasts from all over the world and access programming that you would not otherwise be able to hear. Antenna is a free Adobe AIR app that makes it easier than ever to find new radio stations.
If you already listen to a local or national radio station, the chances are that there is an online stream available for you to take advantage of on your computer. But the beauty of the internet is that you are able to access content from the other side of the world, and this is a great way to discover new music. However, it can be difficult to find new stations to listen to, and Antenna can help you in this department.
Rather than having to search for stations by name, you can use an interactive map and a series of icons driven options to home in on the type of station you are looking for. Being Adobe AIR based, the App can be used on a range of platforms but it is the ease with which stations can be found that is particularly pleasing. It is possible to search for stations by name, by the map and icon based search options are more appealing.
You can click on country flags to filter stations by language or country, and you also have the ability to filter by genre. Having filtered to this extend you can then order the search results by the bit rate at which they are broadcast and the reliability of the stream. As added bonuses, it is possible to rate and ‘favorite’ stations for easy access, and even record broadcasts without the need for additional software.
