Blog: Radio Station Now Streaming On iPhones

A blog written by Noncommercial free-form WFMU/JERSEY CITY, NJ claims that its station's signal can now be live-streamed over iPHONES.
"We are pleased to announce that WFMU's live streams are finally available on the iPHONE," the blog stated. "iPHONE listeners can point their browsers at iphone.wfmu.org and listen to our live mp3 streams at either 128k or 32k and also choose from a selection of our archived content and podcasts ... For the time being we are only offering a small subset of our archived content and podcasts on the iPHONE but will be adding more content as time goes by."
For whatever reason, APPLE has so far refused to integrate a streaming player into its iPHONE. Undaunted, WFMU claims to have "been looking at all kinds of options to provide a live iPHONE stream since the product launched in JUNE." Their best solution:
"TVERSITY, a NEW JERSEY-based software company, announced that they had figured out a way to stream to the iPHONE. TVERSITY's main product offering is a media server that allows you to stream all your audio and video content from your home computer to various web-enabled devices (including many mobile devices and game consoles) ... We'd like to thank TVERSITY for helping us deliver what we believe is the first live streaming offering for the iPHONE.
