College Basketball Super Fans Rejoice!

College basketball kicks off this Friday, and we have some good news:

TuneIn Radio will not only offer hundreds of live men’s and women’s basketball games, but also pre-game, post-game, and coaches shows – and even the ability to listen to hometown perspectives and sports talk from any team’s local stations.

Starting now, college basketball super fans can be sure they’ll never miss a game, or even a play – whether they are at work, in the car, or out and about. Want even more? Listen in for team specific programming on thousands of sports talk stations – all for free.

College basketball on TuneIn Radio is a result of our collaborations with IMG College, Learfield Sports, ESPN Radio and Spartan Sports Network, and will include every Pac-12 game, ESPN Radio games, and hundreds of others from teams including Navy, Northwestern, and Michigan St.

Earlier this month we announced that TuneIn Radio has over 100,000 stations to choose from. A huge part of reaching that milestone has been due to our continued dedication to bringing sports fans the most comprehensive selection of sports coverage from around the world, by making everything from college football and the World Series, to NASCAR and Premier League available to fans for free.

 

Simply search “college basketball” on the free TuneIn Radio app or visit TuneIn.com/collegebasketball. Fans using the TuneIn Radio app on iPhone, iPad or Android devices can add upcoming live games to a digital calendar.

TuneIn Radio – Now Over 100,000 Stations

The most radio stations ever in one place

Today, we’re proud to announce that TuneIn Radio now has over 100,000 radio stations.

That’s a whole lot of stations in your pocket.  But it’s not about listening to each one. It’s about having what you need, when you want it.

If you’re a sports fan and can’t catch the game (in person or on TV), not only can you hear games on TuneIn Radio, but you can also choose sports talk from each team’s hometown, pre- and post-game. You can listen to national shows, or pinpoint a local station or police scanner when breaking news happens. If you like talk shows, you can hear your favorite hosts, even when you’re out of town. And of course, we have every music genre under the sun.

This year alone, we’ve added thousands of stations. This includes more live sports, like Germany’s Bundesliga soccer league and every Pac-12 football game. We’ve added radio shows, including an exclusive 24/7 This American Life station. We’ve continued to add international programming from broadcasters like Korea’s MBC and France’s RFI. We’ve also brought you world-class music stations, like Radio Disney.

We can’t wait for you to find your next favorite station from the 100,000 to choose from on TuneIn.

Happy Listening!
