Music may be the first thing that springs to mind when you think about streaming audio, but there’s also a ton of great spoken word content available online, and one of the best ways to enjoy it is with Stitcher SmartRadio. To that end, Sonos and Stitcher have teamed up today to make sure anyone with a Sonos system can easily enjoy all the audio content Stitcher has to offer from the comfort of their couches.
Stitcher provides a selection of more than 5,000 shows from talk radio personalities to podcasts with topics ranging from news to sports to entertainment. Content offerings include selections as diverse as NPR’s Fresh Air, E!’s Chelsea Lately, TechCrunch Headlines, CNN News, BBC and Adam Carolla.
However, what makes Stitcher really interesting is a feature that allows you to create custom radio stations by “stitching” together your favorite shows from across genres. Based on these stations, Stitcher will smartly recommend new content, which you can then rate using thumbs up/thumbs down buttons. And of course, you can easily access all of this functionality via any Sonos Controller.
Start listening for free today by signing up for the Stitcher service directly from your Sonos Controller. Even better, if you sign up on Stitcher’s website between now and June 17, you will be automatically entered to win a prize package containing a Sonos S5 and ZoneBridge (contest is open to U.S. residents only).
