Internet radio

The distribution of audio broadcasts over the Internet. There are thousands of Internet radio stations that can be streamed to a software media player in a computer, mobile device, stand-alone Internet radio, media hub or media server. Often called "Webcasts," they come from myriad organizations as well as traditional AM and FM radio stations. If an Internet radio has built-in wireless connectivity, it may be called a "Wi-Fi radio."

Live or Canned
Internet radio may be streamed in real time along with regular AM and FM over-the-air broadcasts, or it may be a recording of a previous broadcast. In the latter case, the Webcast can be streamed at any point from the beginning. See media player, virtual radio station, RealAudio and Windows Media formats.
