Internet Radio

Internet radio has no geographic limits. Whereas currently - dependent upon your location - you may be able to tune in to between 50 to 100 stations, by utilizing the web, internet radio has access to a vast broadcast spectrum, covering the entire planet. Internet radio is delivering more programming and choice than ever before in the history of broadcasting!

Imagine having instant access to a selection of over 20,000 stations in any genre imaginable? Thanks to internet radio, that’s just what’s on offer. Individual stations offer dozens of station selections for very specific genres, such as Alternative Rock, Blue, Folk Soul and many, many more. Whatever you’re a fan of, you’re sure to find a station for you!

You can easily search for an internet radio by name, location or genre on your Roberts Smart Radio. If you prefer a particular type of music - Jazz, for example - you can easily search for a radio station that broadcasts that type of music, and you can choose from a list of Jazz radio stations regardless of location.

Be in Dublin and listen to a station in California with perfectly clarity, or be in London and tune into your favourite station in Ireland. Radio is no longer limited to where you are, with internet radio you can listen to the whole world.

With a traditional radio, you’re limited by the strength of the signal. Move away from that signal and the station you’re listening to crackles and disappears - you may have experienced this on a car journey when your local radio station begins to fade - internet radio doesn’t suffer from this because it comes via the web rather than radio waves.

Listening to radio via the web comes with very exciting benefit. You can listen to any radio station from around the world, wherever you happen to be! You could still tune into your local station even if you’re on the other side of the world.

DAB Radio

DAB stands for Digital Audio Broadcasting, this is a way of broadcasting radio digitally via a network of transmitters, it provides listeners with more choice, digital sound quality and more information. Because of the way DAB technology works, broadcasters can transmit many more stations than ever before.

DAB digital radio delivers sound quality. The technology allows the receiver to lock on to the strongest signal it can find and ignore everything else - this eliminates the hiss, crackle and fade so familiar on analogue radio.

A DAB digital radio will tune to a station at the touch of a button, no more fine-tuning a station to get the best reception. A DAB set allows the listener to scroll through a list of available stations by name, then tune in by pressing the ‘select’ button.
