NextRadio has signed an agreement with smartphone manufacturer LG Electronics MobileComm to enable FM chips in LG phones. LG will enable the FM chip in its smartphones providing millions of people access to local FM radio across the United States and Canada, as well as Latin American countries, with more countries to follow.
Subject to agreements with wireless carriers, LG also will preload NextRadio on a number of models.
“We are proud and excited to partner with one of the world’s leading smartphone providers to continue our mission of connecting and exposing users to a fully immersive radio experience,” says Paul Brenner, President of NextRadio powered by TagStation. “This alliance will give millions of consumers the opportunity to receive real over-the-air FM radio through their phone.”
