RadioTime, Inc, a developer of technology for finding and listening to radio online, and Roku Inc., a leading supplier of innovative digital media products, today announced the availability of the RadioTime channel for free on the Roku streaming media player. Developed by a Roku and RadioTime customer working with Rokuâ€™s publicly available software development kit (SDK) and RadioTimeâ€™s Open Application Programming Interface (API), the Roku RadioTime Channel adds access to over 20,000 AM/FM and Internet-only radio stations and more than 100,000 programs to Rokuâ€™s ever-growing library of multimedia content.
â€œThere was an obvious demand for Internet Radio on the Roku DVP and RadioTime offered the path of least resistance to satisfying that demand,â€? said Chris Hagedorn, who posts regular updates on all his projects to his web site www.TheNowhereMan.com. â€œThe RadioTime API is freely available, built on open standards, and is easy to work with.â€?
The Roku RadioTime Channel, which will be available on June 1, 2010, requires no set up or registration. Users can also link to their RadioTime.com accounts to manage their favorite station and program presets on the Roku player. more
