Info on Internet Radio for Italy and beyond....

(LAST EDITED/UPDATED: 19 January 2008)

Here are some links on Internet Radio for Italy and beyond:

  • digitalradiotech.co.uk
    • Broadband Internet Radio – "This page provides links to broadband Internet radio streams for the bigger UK radio stations that are at a higher level of audio quality than they're at on DAB. The reason they're at a higher level of audio quality is due to them using more modern audio formats -- such as WMA, AAC and Ogg Vorbis -- than the outdated MP2 format that's used on DAB. Furthermore, the audio quality of Internet radio streams is likely to get better over time due to Internet bandwidth reducing in price, which allows the broadcasters to use higher bit rate levels."
    • Internet Radio – "Internet radio seems to have earned itself a reputation for being at low audio quality, which in a lot of cases has been a fair criticism up to now due to the bigger stations typically using very low bit rate levels until recently. However, the Internet will become the system that provides the highest audio quality out of all of the digital systems that carry radio within the next year or two (as of 2007)!"

This blog entry was originally part of one that I posted back in 2005. It has been updated and is for those individuals that are more interested in radio than TV. It should be noted that whatever I say or state for Italy with few exceptions is good for other countries in the world. This is just a sampling of the thousands of internet radio stations available on the internet.
