It is interesting to know that today’s online radio has become very popular not only among teenagers but also among the representatives of the older generation. This leads to the fact that the number of FM radio stations has significantly risen.
Their density on the radio set’s scale has become very high. Why is online radio so attractive? First of all, one of the main advantages of this radio is the quality of the sound which is much higher than of the common FM radio.
The sound quality does not depend here on the receiving qualities of the radio set or the conditions or environment of the radio waves spreading. This means that however far away the radio station is from you, you will definitely and always get a quality sound from your favorite radio station.
You can listen to online radio only on the Internet. This indicates the main and probably the only disadvantage of Internet radio: it will be impossible to use this radio when you are off the line.
But it is quite definite that in the modern world almost everyone has access to the Internet. That is why Internet connection is a condition of the online radio’s existence rather than a problem.
A characteristic feature of such a radio is its interactive capabilities. What does it mean? It means that now to find a song you liked, you do not have to remember its tune or lyrics.
The name of the composition and its performer is now represented on the screen while the song is playing online. Moreover, most sites offer the so-called “active playlists” which show planned songs the listeners could get acquainted with online.
What is more, radio listeners can also use the function of voting for their favorite melody. Thus, a particular radio station creates a rating by which a playlist is formed.
This means that the song you liked can play one more time if it scores the necessary amount of “votes”. As a result, it is safe to say that Internet radio takes into consideration the preferences of all listeners.
