Find in the same place of any digital medium the Fun or Radio Nova stations, the podcasts of the “Nouveaux Toqués”, a cooking show from France Bleu Azur, or the webradio NRJ at work, it is possible since Thursday April 8. . Long desired by private and public players in the French radio market, the Radioplayer France interface provides the same services as a radio station, but with all the advantages of digital: access to 200 antennas (live or slightly delayed) ) and around 600 webradios (the digital and themed versions of the major networks), their podcasts and replays, all behind a single button.

Challenged by TuneIn Radio, the American site which aggregates thousands of radios and podcasts, challenged by online podcast broadcasting studios, music streaming platforms, etc., NRJ groups (NRJ, Nostalgie, Chérie FM, Rire & Chansons), M6 (RTL, RTL2, Fun), Radio France (France Inter, Franceinfo, France Culture, France Bleu, France Musique, Fip, Mouv), Altice (RMC, BFM Business), Lagardère News (Europe 1, Virgin Radio, RFM) and Les Indés Radios (Latina, Oüi FM, etc.) had no other choice but to add their strengths to adapt to changing uses.

Radioplayer France represents a cost of “A few hundred thousand euros per year” that stakeholders assume equally.
