Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why should my country join Radioplayer?

    Your competition is no longer just from the radio station down the road, but from global entertainment and technology products with multi-milion dollar R&D budgets.

    Radio is a tiny industry in comparison. We can only capitalise on the opportunities offered by connected devices like smart speakers, if we work together. 

  • What's involved in launching the platform?

    If you're already around a table, talking to your industry colleagues about DAB, marketing, or audience measurement - then you're ready for Radioplayer.

    Typically, a country organises itself into a small group of broadcasters, then we work with you to roll out your back-end systems, apps and players. We ask each country to contribute to the further development of Radioplayer through a small annual fee, calculated according to the number of stations you list. We're non-profit, so every penny goes towards growing radio.     

  • How can we partner with Radioplayer?

    Radioplayer partners with car companies and technology platforms which want to integrate radio. We prioritise these areas...

    - Connected car dashboards, where we can help car companies and suppliers build smarter radios

    - Home devices (speakers, TVs etc), where we can deliver high bitrate streams and voice interfaces

    - Official feeds of broadcaster metadata, to power next-generation radio interfaces

    Get in touch if you're interested, particularly if you want to integrate with our new API. 


  • How is Radioplayer performing?

    In Radioplayer's first year in the UK, official RAJAR audience figures showed a 32% year-on-year increase in online listening hours.

    In Belgium, where they launched with just the web player, online listening hours rose by 23% in their first year.

    In Canada, groups are reporting 47% year-on-year increases in streaming hours since launch.

    But every radio market is different, and we're very flexible. How can we help you?
