TUNEIN has added a new customized graphical interface to its web and iPAD versions. "TUNEIN Live" offers rotating tiles with music, sports, and news information based on the logged-in user's listening habits and interests. The system will be added to the service's other mobile apps later this year.
“Our biggest opportunity has been discovery,” said CEO, JOHN DONHAM. “We have more than 70,000 radio stations and more than two million on-demand programs from around the world, and that’s a lot for anyone to digest. We needed a sophisticated system to do the work for our listeners, not ask them to do extra work in order to personalize their experience. TUNEIN Live is a big part of that system.”
“Every day, there are thousands of live events on the radio, from concerts to interviews to sports to a DJ playing a set of songs and, until now, there has never been a way to relay all of this live content to people worldwide,” added DONHAM. “That’s where we’re innovating with TUNEIN Live. We’re combing through our millions of listening options from around the world and, for each individual listener, we’re bringing into focus just the stations that mean something to them.”
