Southern Cross Austereo has become the first Australian radio company to integrate its stations directly onto Sonos’s smart speaker platform.
Sonos listeners can now listen to the Hit and Triple M live radio stations or listen to their favourite shows on demand by adding the Hit Network and Triple M apps directly to their Sonos systems.
The Hit Network app gives access to all Hit stations in the network, including 2Day, Fox, and Sea FM on the Gold Coast and Central Coast plus all the other Hit stations across the country. Listeners can also access SCA’s Hit digital channels Buddha Hits, Old Skool Hits and Easy Hits.
The Triple M app gives listeners access to all Triple M stations in the network, plus Mix 94.5 in Perth, 4TO 102.3 in Townsville, KOFM 102.9 in Newcastle, and 2GO 107.7 on the Central Coast. And Triple M listeners can also get the Triple M digital stations Triple M Classic Rock, Triple M Greatest Hits, Triple M Modern and Triple M Country.
SCA’s chief creative officer Guy Dobson said: “We’re delighted to bring our radio content directly to the Sonos platform. 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.”
