[CES 2013] Radioline is the new kid on the block in the online radio world and today, the radio aggregator announced that it will be in connected TVs, via a partnership with Mstar and in the car, via a partnership with Parrot.
Launched in October 2012 for iOS, Radioline is an iPhone application that aggregates over 25,000 radio stations and 11,000 podcasts. The application is the consumer facing product of the company which also operates a cloud-based mobile internet radio portal solution and provides MNOs (Mobile Network Operators) and Service Providers with its white labeled technology.
I have tried Radioline briefly when it was released and the experience was good. I could find rapidly any radio I wanted, including the European ones. Its vintage look, reminiscent of the golden age of radio, is a great differentiator from similar services such as TuneIn or Stitcher. In case you own an Asteroid from Parrot, you will also be able to try Radioline yourself in your car.
With connected TVs, besides watching movies or TV shows, people will be able to do all kinds of things including listening to radio.
Mstar, a leader in Application Specific ICs (“ASIC”), provides analog and digital TV technology to OEMs including a connected TV package. Radioline will now be integrated in the Mstar product, meaning that you will find it in your next connected TV.
