Live internet radio, or live streaming radio, is broadcast quality content being streamed over the internet. If you have Wi-Fi, or an internet connection through a mobile service provider, you can listen to online radio directly on your smartphone, smart TV or computer.
Live internet radio is increasing in popularity every day. There are 57 million weekly listeners of live internet radio in the United States alone. More people listen to online radio than to satellite radio, podcasts, or cell phone based radio combined.
Many local radio stations attempt to appeal to a broad market. For instance, in the course of an hour, a listener may hear up to 8 minutes of radio ads. While local radio tries to capture the general audience and appeal to everyone, TikiLIVE caters to individuals and niche audiences in various communities. Niches thrive on the internet because listeners with special interests can find what they are looking for, enjoy the entertainment, discover new artists, and find out what is happening in their niche.
Listeners from around the world can find the type of programming that they prefer, instead of settling for what’s available locally. Live internet radio makes it possible for listeners to play their favorite shows at their own convenience. The costs associated with reaching this audience are also reduced, as people are naturally drawn to what interests them.
