Benefits Of Free Internet Radio

Author : Chris Sturat

Radio works on the principle of transmitting signals through oscillating frequency modulations which induce a current in the conductor. This is then transformed into sound. Traditional radio devices have now been replaced with modern technological improvements. Internet radio is one among them.
Internet radio is a sound broadcasting service which is provided on the internet, either for free or by payment. Another name commonly used for internet radio is webcasting or e-radio. As is the case with traditional radios, the internet radio does not offer the listener the choice to modify all or part of the webcast. However, free internet radio provides the immediate advantage of being accessible to listeners across the globe, instead of being restricted to a small target audience.
Free internet radio sites can be easily accessed by using search engines like Google and Yahoo. These sites offer varied programs like sports casts, news and some music which are not played on the regular networks. There are a number of benefits of internet radio which can be categorized both from the transmitter and the receiver.
The ultimate listener who listens to the internet radio programs is benefited since he listens to the programs on an online basis. However, unlike the conventional radio, it offers the advantage to the listener to choose the programs of his choice. The accessibility is through the internet. Hence, it is easily reachable across the globe provided one has access to the internet.
In case of internet radio, it is not necessary to download the songs from the radio website for listeners to access the same. It removes the need for maintaining infrastructure to make the radio signals available to all.
The sound quality on a free internet radio site is comparable with the best and there are fewer advertisements which the listener has to contend with. The speed of access is also much faster. It can be accessed through several other devices like mobiles, smart phones and computers and there is no possibility of a downtime on account of signal interferences. Accessibility to the webcasting service is also much easier because it only requires navigating the internet to reach a favorite station link and creating an account for the user.
Most of internet sites are for free, though some may require subscription on a monthly or yearly basis. In fact, some e-radio stations create a buzz by encouraging the listeners to maximize usability of their sites and even offering a reward scheme for their loyal listeners.
