CORUS ENTERTAINMENT partners with STREAMTHEWORLD to launch an iPHONE/iPOD TOUCH application allowing users to stream all 52 CORUS stations. CORUS says that it is the the first Canadian radio broadcaster to feature a native iPHONE streaming application.
"Our radio stations need to be available wherever our listeners are, and on any device they choose to use," said CORUS interactive division VP/GM DAVID HUSZAR. "With the increasing popularity of the iPHONE and iPOD TOUCH as the device of choice for portable entertainment, we're thrilled to offer our listeners the convenience of accessing their favorite CORUS radio station through them."
"STREAMTHEWORLD is committed to continuously serving CORUS with new user experiences for its audience," said SAMUEL SOUSA, Solution Engineer for STREAMTHEWORLD. "The native CORUS iPHONE application that we designed offers a richer experience since it leverages its touch screen and interaction capabilities, enables the DOLBY AAC for outstanding sound quality and facilitates usage over the 3G network due to low data consumption."
