We’re so excited to sponsor San Francisco’s Outside Lands again. We had an amazing time last year bringing you to the city’s largest music festival with our live stream, and 2013 promises to be even more awesome.
One of the things that makes radio so unique is the personalities behind the music. After getting four of our favorite DJs to tell us all about their show and why they are drawn to radio, we decided to get a little silly.
It’s a big day for TuneIn. Today, we announced that we raised a $25 million round of funding led by Institutional Venture Partners (IVP), with participation from our existing business partners Sequoia Capital, Google Ventures, and General Catalyst Partners.
It’s a big month for our friends from the land down under.
Not only is Australia Day on January 26 but also it’s time for the first Grand Slam tennis event of the year, the Australian Open. And TuneIn has great coverage of both of these events. Read below for more detail, and happy listening!
It’s Election Day/Night/something of the sort, and we wanted to share information with you outside of the polls.
For the month of October, TuneIn analyzed its political listening data, all 4.1 million hours of it or 468 years (yes, really), and identified interesting listening behavior as it relates to conservative and liberal programming on our service.
So see below for some political radio patterns, particularly in key battleground states. No explanation needed as pictures are worth 1,000 words and even more data points.
Once you’re done, listen to live election coverage with TuneIn. And let’s see how these listening trends stack up against votes once polls close oh so soon.

Don’t forget to check out the hilarious comedians who will be performing at SXSW. TuneIn has compiled a list of podcasts from every comedian performing in Austin, from popular shows like WTF with Marc Maron to TuneIn Comedy Showcase headliner Mike Birbiglia. Just search “SXSW” while using TuneIn.
We’re always working to make TuneIn better, and today we’ve updated TuneIn Radio and TuneIn Radio Pro for all iOS devices.
Here’s what you can expect with this new version:
We now have a fix for many of you who’ve experienced issues with the alarm clock and record timer while TuneIn is running in the background. The first time you set an alarm or timed recording, you’ll get a popup with instructions for the fix if we’ve identified that it applies to your Apple device.
We’ve also fixed a few bugs relating to streaming issues some of you have told us about. Remember to send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org to help us identify and fix issues early and often!
Some of you asked for changes in how we handle stations that are “restricted by broadcaster.” We’ve simplified this to help you get to other stations you might like even faster.
You can now use TuneIn with select Ford SYNC vehicles with AppLink!
