FA News – May 17th, 2016

Radionomy Update

This morning, after careful consideration, I decided to completely delete the Radionomy FA station.   This is to ensure that there is no mistake about FA’s legal status with licensing and royalty agencies.  All FA streams are licenced with StreamLicensing.

The downside to this is that we do have iTunes listings that will continue to point to non-existent streams, and anyone tuning it via iTunes will be directed to another station in the directory.  I have contacted iTunes about pointing our old Live365 listing to our 128kb StreamLicensing stream.  I am hopeful they will be able to make that change sooner rather than later.  I have also contacted TuneIn and asked them to relist FA (all three bitrates) now that we are no longer part of Radionomy.

Tuning In To Flashback Alternatives

There has been some confusion about how to tune in to Flashback Alternatives.  Until our listings are updated (or re-added) with services like iTunes and TuneIn, you will need to tune in via the FA website Play Now! buttons.  Clicking on a PlayNow! button will bring you to our StreamLicensing page where you can either use their web player (HTML5 – not Flash) via the Click To Play icon



You can also use you can launch the stream in a player of your choice by clicking on “Tune in using your favorite external media player click here“.  That will bring up this window where you can select your player:


Lastly, if you open the Flashback Alternative website on a Smart Phone/Tablet and click on one of the Play Now! buttons, you will see the To Download And Listen Via IOS or Android Click Here link.  That will start the download of the StreamLicensing mobile app – with FA as the default station.

You can also tune in to Flashback Alternatives via the StreamLicensing directory.

If you have any question about how to tune in to Flashback Alternatives, please contact me here.

As always, thanks for listening to Flashback Alternatives!
