Pandora Holds Streaming Top Slot


streamingThere are no real surprises in the latest streaming report from Triton Digital. Pandora is still on top by a wide margin, followed by Spotify and iHeart.

However, Triton is reporting that the percentage of streaming traffic taking place on mobile devices has now topped the 75% threshold.

“Mobile’s 75% share of listening is a huge milestone,” said Rob Favre, General Manager and Chief Compliance Officer, Webcast Metrics.  “Delivering a high-quality streaming experience on mobile devices is more important than ever given consumers’ propensity for taking their favorite audio on the go.”

As usual, a number of radio groups can be found on the list. None of them poses any sort of streaming threat to the big three.

Here, from Triton, is the top 20 for May 2015.
