RadioTime Radio Guide and Tuner Now Available on
Internet Radio Products
Torian Wireless, an Australian-based global innovator in the Internet
radio industry, today announced a partnership with RadioTime, a
developer of technology for finding and listening to more than 50,000
radio stations online, that positions RadioTime as Torian’s
radio aggregation supplier. The agreement is a worldwide license and
marketing deal, where RadioTime is the official provider behind Torian’s
iRoamer free radio platform offerings.
With the partnership, Torian has licensed RadioTime content as its radio
listings aggregator for powering AM/FM radio access through its iRoamer
Internet radio platform, offered to original equipment manufacturers
(OEM). iRoamer provides a complete solution for manufacturers, who for
the first time can offer a packaged Internet media solution into any
consumer electronics product. OEMs can benefit from the category-leading
software for radio entertainment in their portable product/s, ultimately
allowing end-users to take their Internet radio experience away from the
desktop through iRoamer-powered products. With the RadioTime
partnership, end-users can now access over 100,000 local and syndicated
AM/FM radio programs airing worldwide, as well as the world’s
largest and most diverse selection of premium online music services, and
then customize how they access that content.
“Not only will end-users benefit from the vast
selection of stations and streams they will now be able to access, but
OEMs will benefit as well,” said George
Parthimos, founder and CEO, Torian Wireless. “With
the addition of RadioTime content to our universal iRoamer Internet
radio platform, manufacturers can offer the world’s
largest and most diverse selection of Internet radio content with their
consumer electronics products, as well as enormous advertising
opportunities at the same time.”
RadioTime’s unique online RadioGuide provides
listeners with the ability to search for a specific station or program
or browse by genre or
location to easily see what is available for their tastes, locations,
connections, and the times of day. RadioTime updates its guide with
input from its user community and by leveraging its relationships with
Clear Channel, Cox Radio and other broadcasters.
“Torian Wireless brings a long-established
record of innovation, Wi-Fi expertise, integrated content services,
hardware components and turn-key solutions,”
said Bill Moore, CEO, RadioTime. “RadioTime’s
contributions to this partnership are the most complete and accurate
radio directory, millions of listeners and relationships with
broadcasters such as Cox Radio and Clear Channel. I see this as a very
promising relationship with significant opportunities as Internet radio
continues to move forward and gain momentum.”
iRoamer is available now for all OEMs and ODMs. The first commercial
batch of iRoamer-powered products is due to begin shipping over the next
two quarters. RadioTime content is now available at www.miroamer.com,
Torian’s digital media portal. For additional
