New iHeartRadio Integrations Unveiled At CES

This year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas brought a number of new product and service integrations for the digital iHeartRadio platform, formerly known as Clear Channel Radio, including partnerships with a number of high-profile technology partners.

First up, iHeartRadio will be featured in Sony products for the first time, including integrations in the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 systems, as well as some Sony televisions and mobile devices. The online radio service will also be available in LG products, like the new 2015 LG Music Flow Wi-Fi Series of devices, in addition to all current and new LG smart TVs.

The iHeartRadio app will be integrated into LG’s Music Flow Player app, a wireless speaker system that can be controlled with mobile devices.

In addition, iHeartRadio will be integrated with Dish’s new home music system, which turns Dish’s Hoppers and accompanying Joey speakers into streaming music devices. TiVo is also incorporating the iHeartRadio app into its Roamio, Mini, and Premiere devices. Finally, iHeartRadio will be one of the debut apps available on Google’s new Google Cast for Audio service, which uses the same technology in Google’s Chromecast to support speakers, sound bars, and audiovisual receivers.



Currently, iHeartRadio claims to have 60 million registered users for its streaming music and digital radio service.

In October, iHeartRadio announced that the app would be available for Android Wear, Google’s open-source operating system for wearable devices, which is integrated with Android for smartphones.

Also last year, iHeartRadio announced integrations with Amazon’s Fire Phone and Fire TV, Google’s Chromecast and Apple’s CarPlay, as well as deals with automakers, including Subaru, GM, Jaguar Land Rover, Kia and Volvo.

It also partnered with AdsWizz, an advertising technology company, to develop a new method to insert targeted audio ads in live broadcast radio streams for the iHeartRadio platform
