Internet radio service Slacker Radio have updated their app to emphasise their original shows that take you behind and beyond the music of artists with over 250 interactive episodes.
Music streamers Slacker Radio are improving their app to highlight their niche in exclusive original shows hosted and featuring a variety of artists. In a music streaming landscape that’s moving into video content Slacker are the first radio service to do it and the most original we’ve seen.
CEO of Slacker Radio, Duncan Orrell-Jones said: “Since our inception Slacker has been focused on reinventing the radio experience, an attribute that sets us apart from other terrestrial, internet radio or satellite music services. We believe the magic of music listening does not come from the music catalog alone, rather the way in which the song is delivered to the listener.”
With that in mind Slacker’s update introduces a new user interface that doesn’t just aim to look prettier but make it easier than ever to access all your favourite content – whether that be one of Slacker’s themed stations, an artist curated show, on-demand streaming, etc.
