London-based Radioplayer has signed a deal with Sparknet and BBM Analytics to launch Radioplayer in Canada.
Radioplayer Canada will be modelled on the UK version, which lists hundreds of UK radio stations including all BBC and commercial stations.
Michael Hill, Managing Director of UK Radioplayer Ltd told RadioToday: “It’s really encouraging to see the UK Radioplayer model spreading to other countries. Not only have we created world-leading radio interfaces for desktop, mobile, and tablet – we’ve also proved the value of collaborating on technology. It’s the only way of achieving scale, influencing manufacturers, and establishing sensible standards.”
No firm launch date has been set other than “this Spring”.
