Listening to Internet radio stations

You can use iTunes to listen to music streamed live over the Internet.

To tune in to Internet radio stations:

  1. In iTunes, click Radio (below Library).

  2. To see the available stations, click the triangle next to the type of music you want to listen to.

  3. To tune in, double-click a station.

You can’t record or save a song from a radio broadcast, but you can add your favorite stations to your library or to a playlist so that you can tune in easily.

If you use a dial-up modem to connect to the Internet: Choose a station with a bit rate of less than 48 kilobits per second (Kbps) for best results. Also try this: Choose Edit > Preferences, click Advanced, and then choose Large from the Streaming Buffer Size pop-up menu.
