Why we recommend the online radio listening?
There are almost only advantages of the online radio listening compared to the conventional way. The broadcasts' quality is interference free, excellent, and continuous, while the FM radios highly depend from the area, terrain, weather and many other faulty factors. Depending on internet access, the online radios are available all over the world, without the difficulty of searching frequencies, with just one click we can reach our favourite radio! Thanks to the online way, the radios' previous playlists and future programmes are available. By the previous playlists, the earlier broadcasted songs can be listened to again! At the same time, the online radio broadcasts have not always their advantages, but sometimes disadvantages. For example the broadcast can lag if the online listener number is very high, this can cause the overload of the radio server. To prevent it, the most popular online radios, like BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 4 Extra, BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra, BBC Radio 6 Music, Classic FM, KISS, Magic, talkSPORT, Absolute Radio, Capital FM, Heart, Virgin and Smooth have alternative broadcaster servers, by using them, we can avoid the lag. The other disadvantage affects only those smart-mobile users whose data traffic is limited and have to pay according to their data usage. For them, the use of online radios may be expensive, so be careful! Usually the broadcasts transmit between 32 kbit/sec and 128 kbit/sec to the user's device. This depends on, and define the quality of the broadcast. So about 1 MB/minute data traffic can be generated on your smart device by the average quality streams, but more with the 320 kbit/sec quality streams, and much more with the HQ streams. Every stream quality is highlighted with the selected stream-name. Thus the best option in this case is to connect to a free Wifi-network and enjoy your chosen radio for free!
