NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Clear Channel Radio, the leading media company in America with a greater audience reach than any radio or television outlet, announced today that the New iHeartRadio, Clear Channel’s free, industry-leading digital radio service, is now available on Microsoft’s Xbox 360, the No. 1 selling entertainment console in the United States.
The New iHeartRadio service offers users the chance to control their favorite iHeartRadio stations with their voice or hand via Kinect for Xbox 360. Xbox LIVE Gold members who have Xbox 360, but do not have Kinect, can still enjoy the New iHeartRadio experience using their controller. All Xbox LIVE Gold members will have access to the New iHeartRadio’s features, including more than 800 of the nation's most popular live broadcast and digital-only radio stations from 150 cities, plus custom stations with more songs, better music intelligence and more user control.
Xbox 360 users are also able to connect their New iHeartRadio accounts to Xbox LIVE for immediate access to many of the New iHeartRadio services and compelling social features through iHeartRadio’s relationship with Facebook. This initiative builds on Clear Channel’s and Microsoft’s previous partnerships to integrate iHeartRadio on Windows Phone 7 as well as to stream the iHeartRadio Music Festival, the incredibly successful two-day concert event which took place September 23 and 24 in Las Vegas, in HD exclusively on the Xbox 360.
“We’re excited about the debut of the New iHeartRadio on Xbox 360 and to bring this first-of-its-kind experience to our iHeartRadio listeners,” said Brian Lakamp, President of Clear Channel Digital. “This is another example of how we are committed to offering personal music experiences wherever our listeners are.”
