Booth N3833 — NextRadio combines broadcast radio with the Internet to create an interactive listening experience on Android smartphones. Images and data delivered over the Internet in sync with the radio programming use 20-times less data than streaming apps. The broadcast audio is received through the phone’s built-in FM receiver instead of over the Internet, which results in three times less battery usage than streaming apps.
NextRadio is being rolled out on the new Samsung S7 and S7 Edge phones, and the company has added AT&T to its list of carriers activating the FM chip. New reporting for broadcasters is com- ing soon and enhanced ad results are available.
