I'm Done With Spotify, Pandora, and Sirius Ads, Where Can I Get Real Free Online Radio?

Online Radio Alternatives

Alternatives to Pandora, Spotify, Sirius other Premium Radio Services:

  • Rhapsody
  • Shoutcast
  • Icecast
  • Jango

Rhapsody has been around since 2001 and is very reliable, however for premium no-ad service you're gonna have to pay up for it. Jango is free and great also, but full of ads as well. Shoutcast and Icecast are not bound to one site, parent, or even company. They include many stations from broadcasters all around the world. This means that the station's reliability, ads, and playlist will depend on the actual broadcasters instead.

So Then Why Should I Try Shoutcast? 
Because a lot of Shoutcast broadcasters don't have ads, and still maintain a 99% reliability rate. Stations tend to take the craft more seriously, leading to better content and better playlists. Did you know that most of the songs you hear on premium radio services are actually just another ad? Most songs are nothing more than sponsored content; forced into constant rotation by corporate marketing and management. Furthermore, Shoutcast stations are always FREE to listen to.

Ok So How Does it Work? Can I Get It On My Smart Phone?
Yes Shoutcast Online Radio works with iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, and even older legacy cell phones. There are plenty of apps for all, and can even be played through any web browser that supports Flash, HTML5, and Javascript. You can save your favorite stations, and share them through social media just as you would with other premium radio services. You can even pause live streams and request songs to be played on demand through the playlist.
