SCA stations directly integrated with Sonos in Australian first
Southern Cross Austereo has secured a new partnership with Sonos that will see its network radio stations integrated directly with Sonos’ speaker platforms.
Newly available stations include 2DayFM, Fox FM, SEA on the Gold Coast and Central Coast, all Triple M stations, as well as digital stations including Buddha, Old Skool, Easy, Triple M Classic Rock, Triple M Greatest Hits, Modern, and Country.
“We’re delighted to bring our radio content directly to the Sonos platform,” said SCA chief creative officer Guy Dobson.
“As a leader in the smart speaker market, they are a natural fit as SCA looks to make our content available on all platforms and products that our listeners want to use to listen to the radio.”
The Sono partnership comes after SCA’s Australia first partnerships with Amaxon Alexa suite of speakers and Google Assistant for news and sport briefings.
“At Sonos we are all about turning silent homes into soulful ones so we’re thrilled this partnership gives Australian Sonos owners the choice to listen to their favourite radio stations out loud, in any room in their house, through their Sonos system,” said Sonos country director of Australia Rennie Addabo.
“Radio lovers can now use their Sonos Controller (their Sonos app) to switch over to any SCA radio station they want to listen to – so, country in the bedroom or classic rock in the kitchen – it’s now all at their fingertips, adding even more variety to Sonos’ wide range of streaming services.”
ARN launched their own Sonos integration in late 2017, which can be accessed by logging into an iHeartRadio account to the Sonos Controller App.
All ARN and iHeartRadio stations are available this way.
