"The term "Internet radio" seems to be everywhere. Internet radio's now built into an increasing number of smart phones, laptops, TV, streamers and even tabletop radios. But what exactly is "Internet radio?" If you're one of Pandora's 50 million registered users, or one of the 42 million listening to a web-only show through SHOUTcast, then you're listening a form of Internet radio.
Without some sort of definition, though, it's difficult to see all the exciting possibilities this new medium offers."
Struktura článku:

Webcasters let you dig deeper into your favorite genres, uncovering music and artists you might not find otherwise. And interactive services can surprise you by serving up songs that fit into the mix you've created, but you might never have selected on your own.
