Radio Free Virgin Also Debuts Lite Player
LOS ANGELES, April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Radio Free Virgin (www.radiofreevirgin.com), a leading digital radio broadcast company, announced today the launch of a new feature on its player which enables listeners to record their favorite songs or programming blocks from any Radio Free Virgin station. The Record feature allows listeners to playback songs whether they are online or off. Radio Free Virgin also launched Radio Free Virgin Lite, a pop-up window interface that allows listeners to sample twenty Radio Free Virgin stations before downloading the full player.
"Radio Free Virgin is aggressively building a premium digital radio network that offers deep, genre-rich programming that reaches way beyond the realm of terrestrial radio," stated Zack Zalon, General Manager of Radio Free Virgin. "In addition to offering great music, with the Record feature, we free our listeners from the confines of a web-based audio stream by enabling them to store their favorite programming and playback a single song or an entire programming block whenever they want."
The new feature on the Radio Free Virgin Player, a proprietary digital radio tuner, enables listeners to record any of Radio Free Virgin's forty streaming music stations with the click of a button. Users record Radio Free Virgin's streaming music directly to their hard drive. Each high-quality recording can be named and added to the individual user's channel guide for playback later, whether the user is on or offline at the time. The feature not only plays back music, but also integrates the original Radio Free Virgin online experience, displaying corresponding track information, cover art, and a buy button that links to that specific album at the Radio Free Virgin store. Saved audio files will only play back through a Radio Free Virgin player, preventing illegal file swapping and duplication.
Also launching today is Radio Free Virgin Lite, a pop-up window interface which allows users to sample twenty select channels from Radio Free Virgin, before downloading the player. Through Radio Free Virgin Lite, users get a similar experience to what Radio Free Virgin has to offer, from the eclectic array of musical stylings to the album art, song information and buy button -- favorite listener features on the downloadable player. Radio Free Virgin Lite does not give listeners access to all the added values on the downloadable player including the new Record feature and access to all forty channels.
