Radioplayer expands to Switzerland

Jun 2018  RadioWorks Blog

Radioplayer Worldwide (RPW) has signed a licensing agreement with Switzerland to form Swiss Radioplayer. This is an important new market for Radioplayer, as it helps to broaden its European collaborations, as well as adding Italian language radio stations to its growing list of services.

The Swiss Radioplayer will be available through integrations with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Smart Device Link, Chromecast, smartwatches, and Sonos – all powered by the Radioplayer metadata platform.

The agreement will also see Swiss broadcasters benefit from Radioplayer’s partnership with the Audi/VW group and other car manufacturers. The ‘Worldwide Radioplayer API’ powers new hybrid radio interfaces, capable of switching automatically between DAB, FM, and streaming. It also includes rich data such as podcast and catch up programmes, station recommendations, and phonetic spellings of station names to support in-car voice interfaces and smart speakers.

The platform is due to launch later this summer using the Radioplayer technology.

Lawrence Galkoff, General Manager for Radioplayer Worldwide said: “I am delighted to welcome another new country to the growing Radioplayer family. We look forward to 2018 being a great year for Radioplayer as more countries realise the importance of being part of an organisation that is run by broadcasters, for broadcasters and their listeners.”
