Note: Nativ’s own internet radio service will be implemented in Version 2 of the software. In the meantime you can enjoy radio apps like TuneIn and Calm Radio, which are accessible under the MUSIC SERVICES category.
The Nativ Internet Radio delivers radio stations in the following categories:
Favorites: Lists all the stations that you have saved as your own personal favorites. You can choose between a more visual “Logo View” and a more efficient “List View”. Your favorite stations are categorized by Music, Talk and Podcasts.
You can also add a new radio station if it is not in the database.
Local Stations: Here you can find stations that are based on your location (or any location you decide to call home). Just like with Favorites you can choose between a “Logo View” and “List View”, and sort and narrow down the station selection according to predefined criteria.
Popular: Based on the preferences and listening habits of vTuner’s worldwide customer base we deliver the radio stations that are the most popular overall, or are currently trending. Again you can narrow down the stations by location or genre to quickly find new stations that you like.
Recommended: We take your own preferences and listening habits and suggest you radio stations that we think you might like. This will get more accurate over time.
Categories: A more traditional way to find the exact station you are looking for. Simply pick a main category (Genre, Location, Language, Popular Artists, Podcasts) and then narrow down your search by selecting a sub-category (e.g. Classical Music under the Genre category).
Discovery: Provides you with a traditional search functionality and an innovative query to find a station that plays your favorite artist.
The Play-Screen delivers detailed information about the station and what is currently playing:
Depending on the metadata provided by the station you can for example see a list of the last 10 songs they played, the top 10 artists, available podcasts, and stations that are similar (or from the same network).
Another great feature is that you can record any radio show, either instantly from the play-screen or via the station’s program schedule (if provided). Missed your favorite show or song by a few seconds? We buffer the station you are currently listening to so you can start recording after the song/show has started and still not miss a beat. Time shifting is therefore also possible: Simply pause the station and resume when you are ready.
