The trump card of the FM broadcasting is gradually losing its popularity. It has always been considered a channel of radio signal transmission which is most protected against interference. But there are already so many FM stations that it has become very hard to separate one from another. Interference, in its turn, annoys music lovers to the great degree when they listen to music.
A new gismo of the Internet comes to the aid of music admirers. It is the radio online enjoying its rapid development. There are no more radio stations left which do not have a backup channel in the web. If you want to listen to this radio, it will be enough for you to have access to the Internet from your computer. Any media player can transmit the audio signal.
The main advantage of such broadcasting is absolute absence of radio interference. The signal is transmitted in the digital form and the distance to the user or the landscape of the area play no role in this situation. Today, the traffic of the Internet, even a mobile one, is quite sufficient to listen to the radio with a guaranteed high quality.
The Internet radio has another important advantage over the typical one. It is common knowledge that FM radio stations have a limited work range when listeners want to listen to their music everywhere: at rest, in a business trip, and while traveling. But the Internet has no limits. The favorite station will be with the listener even in the other hemisphere of the Earth. The choice of stations in the net is much wider than on the air. It is always possible to diversify the musical menu and choose a new FM radio to your liking.
Though there is such broadcasting which works only in the Internet. Every user can arrange its own radio and send the favorite music to his/her friends. There is a great variety of such channels. Maybe the tune you would like to listen to is playing there right now.
Also you may listen your favorite radio station from every corner of earth, because internet radio works wherever you find access to wi-fi or internet. You can listen to radio on mobile devices via gps or 3G connection. Do not forget that you can record favorite program or download the podcast and listen to it in convenient time for you.
