Infinity To Launch Visual Radio in U.S.
Apr 18, 2005, 12:56 PM by (staff)
Infinity Broadcasting today announced plans to deploy Visual Radio in the U.S.. Developed by Nokia, Visual Radio allows listeners to tune in to local FM radio via their mobile phones while simultaneously receiving interactive information and graphics via the cellular network, synchronized with the broadcast. Users can view the title and artist of a song playing, check upcoming concert dates, purchase ring tones or other content from the artist, and participate in radio station promotions. HP will supply the back-end technology to offer the service. Infinity is one of the largest major-market radio operators in the United States, with 183 radio stations nationwide.
This is a good idea
