Re: Suggestions please for a good AM-FM Radio

@nana59 : Thank you. I am researching this and everything that I find is used and wondering if this is still worth the risk and investment.❤️

Re: Suggestions please for a good AM-FM Radio

@QVCkitty1 : I just checked the apps you suggested and can't find any free for my IPad. Purchase $9.99. I may try this because the radio reception today not clear.

With regular radio you can only pick up so much. IHeart radio and TuneIn Apps are free.

Re: Suggestions please for a good AM-FM Radio

@Mz iMac : I looked for the free app first and didn't see it. Then the purchase one indicated just $9.99 a month so I clicked install. The station that I wanted popped up and I clicked on it- then in the middle of page was another pop up indicated $14.99 a month with one week free trial . I tried to bypass the page but DH upset because missing the baseball game . I clicked on it thinking that I could cancel after the game. The broadcast was extremely clear and great plus included one of DH favorite announcers. After the game- I deleted the app and then went under settings to delete and cancel. Received a confirmation of the cancellation but indicated still had availability to view for a week. Looked on the home page and app was reinstalled. Next week will look again for the free app. Plus will do more research for a radio with better options and able to adjust.

Re: Suggestions please for a good AM-FM Radio

@SouthernBee   An Amazon Dot is $39.99 at Best Buy - and it will probably be on sale around the holidays.  It's a smart speaker and it picks up radio stations, including the Braves' flagship radio station, WCNN AM (680 The Fan).  MLB teams sometimes block their live radio broadcasts from the internet but I don't think the Braves do because I am right now - in Pennsylvania - listening to the Braves' post-game show on 680 The Fan via my Dot.

 

My team is the Phillies.  The Phillies didn't allow its flagship radio station to live-stream games until this year.  My understanding is that they now allow it to stream only within a certain geographic area, i.e, an area that approximates the reception area of the radio station.  The idea is to protect the revenue stream of services like Sirius XM, which carry all MLB games live - for a monthly fee, of course.

@SouthernBee  Install the app from "The App Store" which is already on your iPad.

@ValuSkr : Stupid question because I don't understand. Is the Amazon dot the artificial intelligence stuff because DH doesn't want it in the house or is this just a special speaker. I currently have a $10 certificate from Best Buy. Thanks.

@SouthernBee , I'm sorry that I steered you wrong. The stations that I listen to are free on my IPad so I assumed that all were .  I should check before I give advice, but I meant well. Again sorry.

Re: Suggestions please for a good AM-FM Radio

@QVCkitty1 : Please you didn't steer me wrong. You gave me information. Plus it worked out for DH since he didn't miss the game. I still appreciate you and your help. No need to apologize. ❤️
