iPhone users gain hundreds of indie radio channels

Indie-focused online music radio broadcaster, BreakThru Radio is using technology from TVersity to offer on-demand radio shows to iPhone users.

The news means the broadcaster’s diverse range of channels – covering the gamut, from reggae to rock and (as far as we here can tell from a morning’s flicking between channels) really quite listenable.

Access is easy, iPhone users simply need to navigate to http://209.17.190.165/ in Safari on their device. One there they will be presented with a series of drop-down menus which allow them to choose the on-demand show they want to hear.

Designed to break the dull stranglehold of commercial radio playlist culture in the US, BreakThru Radio is a channel collection that comprises interesting new sounds from the underground scene: death metal, dancehall, dubstep, hip-hop, indie rock, skronk, roots country, reggae, electronica, acid jazz, ambient beats, dub, two-step or folk – whatever,

The site offers its one million daily listeners unlimited access to underground music, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
