Corus Entertainment announced today that it has partnered with Montreal's StreamTheWorld to deliver its 52 radio stations on a Corus iPhone application. It looks like Corus is the first Canadian radio broadcaster to feature a native iPhone streaming application.
This easy-to-use application is fully compatible with iPhone and iPod touch. Listeners can search Corus stations either by call letters or by city. The "shake the shuffle" feature allows the user to shake the device and be offered a random Corus radio station. The application also leverages the Dolby Advanced Audio Coding (AAC), enhancing the listening experience at the lowest data consumption.
The Corus Radio application launched at 6th position in the iPhone Top Free Applications for music. Listeners can visit the App Store at the iTunes store, select Music Category and click on Corus Radio in the right hand column.
