Wireless Internet Radios

By: Olly Fallon

The Internet really is a fantastic place - everything there at our fingertips for us to use as and when. This is the case with Internet radio. It's great - you can listen to stations from all over the world or perhaps even small local radio stations that are only available online.

The issue that we have here is that the computer usually limits you as to where you can listen to the radio. Not everyone has a computer in every room, not everyone has speakers in every room that can be rigged up to the computer. This is restrictive and that is not desirable.

This creates a restriction - with the freedom of the Internet we do not want to be restricted. Well now there is a solution - the Wireless Internet Radio.

This device is almost a mini computer in itself - it connects to your existing wireless network as if it was, for example, a laptop computer connecting. This regular looking radio then allows you to access the tens of thousands of stations from anywhere within range. This could be in your back garden, in the bathroom, the kitchen or any other room that you may like to be in.

Not only do you have the ability to listen to all these radio stations but the product allows you to utilise such audio delights as podcasts and listen again services similar to that offered by the BBC - if this is not available for your favourite channel it most likely soon will be as listening to your favourite show, at a time to suit you, is becoming ever more popular.

As an added bonus the Internet radio will also allow you to stream music from your PC to the radio. This means that all your favourite songs that you have stored on your computer no longer need to heard in the same room as your computer.

This versatile little device is surely going to be very popular in the future. Of course, you do need a wireless network to begin with but most good ISPs are now giving wireless routers away for free when you sign up.

The final thing that I must point out - the subscription to these thousands of channels is Free or charge - you pay for the radio then that is it - Free from then on. How good is that!?
