Canadians from coast to coast can now listen to just about any Canadian radio station they choose, at any time, anywhere with the new Radioplayer app. Some pretty big names are on board as Corus Entertainment, Rogers Media, CBC/Radio-Canada, Pattison, and Newcap have all signed on to add their radio stations to the app.
Radioplayer Canada includes radio stations that cover everything from sports to music, news, talk, and entertainment in both English and French. The app will offer suggestions based on your location and listening history, as well as allowing you to search for specific stations. Radioplayer came about roughly five years ago in the UK and is slowly rolling out to different countries around the world.
“The way Canadians listen to radio is changing, and we’re changing with them,” said Julie Adam, Senior Vice President, Rogers Radio. “Radioplayer gives listeners access to their favourite local stations and allows them to discover others across the country like never before. With access on mobile devices and desktop, listening to your favourite station has never been easier.”
One feature that will be built up over time is the ability to search and play past programs at a later date, providing an on-demand programming feature of sorts for your favourite talk shows which would allow you to listen to it at your convenience. Radioplayer Canada is now available in Canada for Android, iOS, and desktop. It also integrates with some in-car apps and the Apple Watch for even more options to listen to your favourite radio stations on the go.
