iHeartRadio, Streema Join the Watch List


Apple-WatchThat’s the list of audio services available on the Apple Watch. In addition to providing a custom station feature for users, iHeartRadio also can connect them with hundreds of radio stations. And Streema can also bring stations to the device.

The iHeartRadio puts users in touch with live radio, on-demand podcasts and custom stations featuring some 800K artists and 20M songs.

“Think of the Apple Watch as a remote control that’s always on your wrist and easily allows you to access all your favorite iHeartRadio stations and features,” said Chris Williams, Chief Product Officer for iHeartRadio. “We designed a simple and beautiful interface that allows users to control their music with ease, providing exactly what they want, when they want it, wherever they are.”

Streema’s service is called simple radio, and it provides access to 25K international radio stations.

“Simple Radio has become so popular because it’s easier than listening to radio on a radio. Simple Radio is the simplest solution for mobile and wearable radio listening,” said Richard Monte, CEO of Streema.  “This simplicity is even more important for wearers of Apple Watch, as the limited screen real estate makes navigation and selection a challenge. With Simple Radio, less is so much more.”
