Internet Radio Stations – What Do You Get Out of Using Them

It seems like just about everything has made its way onto the world wide web, and radio is no exception. In fact, more and more web radio sites are popping up all the time.

What does that mean?

Websites have collected live streams from radio stations all over the world. When you log onto a web radio site, all you have to do is pick a station and it starts playing!
But what do you really get out of listening to internet radio stations?
These 4 things:

1. You can listen to anything

Because internet radio stations are streamed through your internet connection, you can listen to stations that aren’t in your local market. In fact, you can listen to radio stations from anywhere in the world!

A good web radio website will make it easy for you to search – either by location or genre – for stations that appeal to you. From there, all you have to do is click on “play”, and you’ve got plenty of music to listen to!

And, with internet radio stations, the choices are virtually endless. You can listen to everything from 80’s music, to Jazz music, to Gospel music.

2. You can listen for free

Most web-based music services come with plenty of fees. It’s not uncommon to get hit with subscription fees, royalty fees, and a whole bunch of other hidden charges. However, when you listen to internet radio stations, you don’t have to pay a dime! All you have to do is pick a station and start listening. You won’t be asked to sign up for any email lists, pay any subscription costs, or abide by any listening limits. It really is that easy!

3.You don’t have to worry about interference
You’ve probably had it happen a bunch of times… You’re jamming away to your 80’s music, when, all of a sudden, a thunderstorm rolls through, you drive through a tunnel, or you suffer some other kind of interference. Before you know it, your 80’s music is gone and replaced with loud, obnoxious static!

Luckily, when you listen to web radio, you don’t have this problem. That’s because internet radio stations stream through your internet connection – rather than over the air, through an antenna. As long as you have an internet connection, you’ll have crystal-clear music.

4.You get to listen to playlists from real DJ’s
Because internet radio stations are real radio stations being streamed online, you have real DJ’s picking the music – instead of a computer randomly picking songs for you.
