When I first heard about the launch of Radioplayer a year ago, I was very excited. Being a fan of a wide range of music and all commerical radio for a number of years (yes, I queued for hours for tickets to the Best Junior Disco in Town), I am a devotee to not just one station, but numerous. Which is why I always found listening to the radio via the internet a bit of a pain. There was no easy way to jump to & from my favourite stations, instead I was faced with a number of different interfaces, all of which needed to load & buffer, this usually meant I would usually give up after trawlng just one or two.
So on Thursday when I attended the launch of UK Radioplayer, I was amazed at the simple, yet detailed, online listening platform that has been developed. A ground breaking partnership between Commercial Radio & the BBC which brings all of UK radio online in one place. No matter if you listen to Commercial or BBC radio, you see the same interface for all stations (individually branded), with the core facilities always in the same place. If you love the ease of listening to the radio in your car, then you will not be disappointed with Radioplayer. It offers the same simplicity, such as presetting your favourite stations and the ability to switch from one to the other at the click of a button, but with a deeper lever of user control via the innovative search facility. You are able to search by station name, presenter, programme, location or topics, and not only will you be offered the most relevant stations for your search, you will also be given the option to tune into Podcasts, listen again and on-demand programming.
Launching with over 150 stations and already set to grow to over 220 by next week and potential plans for availability on smart phones and tablet computers, UK Radioplayer really is the best way to listen to radio online!
