Streaming radio on mobile phones is one of the biggest growth areas in listening right now – with innovations such as TuneIn Radio, the UK Radioplayer and radio stations’ increased visibility in the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store, can you afford not to be available to millions of mobile phone listeners?
With years of experience, Canstream is ideally placed to get your station in front of mobile users. We offer a number of services, including:
Most mobile phone apps, including the fast-growing UK Radioplayer, require you to provide a low-bitrate stream to users on 3G and 4G networks to increase stability and reduce bandwidth use. We can take your existing high-quality stream, and transcode it into the modern, efficient AAC+ codec, which squeezes more audio quality into less bandwidth.
This is specifically recommended by Radioplayer and is a requirement for their mobile iOS and Android apps – so if you want to get your Radioplayer station onto phones quickly and easily, with no extra encoder or bandwidth needed at your studio, get in touch with us now.
Easy submission to directories
Finding and adding your station to every streaming app, wi-fi radio operator and online directory is an onerous task. We can, on request, do this for you – quickly and simply – meaning you can sit back and enjoy the extra listeners. We submit to TuneIn Radio, the Pure Lounge, Reciva and (for Ofcom-licensed stations) RadioFeeds UK & Ireland – plus many more.
We’ll be adding more ways we can help you get online on the move soon – keep checking back for further details, and get in touch if you’d like to know more!
