Orange rolls out wireless radio
Orange has a brand new device for all of you out there – its wireless radio known as the Liveradio! It enables listeners to tune in to radio stations from all over the world in Hi-Fi quality, while taking advantage of the Liveradio service at the same time. Basically, the new Liveradio offers access to more than 5,000 radio stations as well as 11,000 podcasts (which consist of news, sport, music and comedy) from around the world. All your content can be personalized, while downloading tracks is a snap. Orange also doesn’t short change customers by compromising on sound quality, offering an excellent level that will surely be appreciated by most, if not all of its listeners. In addition, each purchase comes with an intuitive and easy-to-use remote control.
Orange has decided to go retro with its Liveradio as it comes in a vintage looking wooden casing. You are able to hook up to the Internet thanks to Wi-Fi or via Ethernet or any other Internet router, allowing you to have a go from virtually anywhere in your house. The Liveradio does not just receive broadcasts from all over the world, it also comes with a media player function that enables you to tune in to music stored on your computer when you want a more customized playlist – for example, during an intimate dinner where you would want to play your wife’s favorite song to roll back the years and relive your younger, love-enchanted days. Using the Liveradio does not require a rocket science degree, as it comes with three pre-set buttons up front, an LCD display, an infrared remote control and eight buttons that provide direct access to radio stations. The inclusion of a USB port allows you to listen to audio content in WMA, MP3, WAV and Real formats via a USB flash drive or compatible device, while the integrated FM tuner lets you tune in to what the local spinmasters are doing. Heck, you can even save your favorite tracks using the Favorites Button.
