Wireless Internet Radio
Does it exist?

I love listening to Internet radio, mostly because the radio where I am at the moment in Malaysia isn't particularly good. I tend to listen to a lot of BBC channels (4, 3, world) as well as the 'listen again' feature. There are a few other international stations which I found via shoutcast which are pretty good as well.

The only problem is that I need to keep my PC on and either run wires or rebroadcast the feeds locally to be able to listen to it in other places. What would be really really nice would be a portable 'radio' which instead of listening to FM, AM and SW - connects to my wireless internet - and lets me choose the channel to stream.

Does such a thing exist or am I asking too much from modern technology? It would have to support streaming MP3 and RealAudio at a minimum.

phranque,

Thanks for that - looks a very useful product, but not quite what I'm after. I was hoping for something which would connect to the internet wirelessly, so I'd not have to have my PC on to stream radio.

Roku does not support Real Audio.

Look for 'ae internet radio' - great product, supports Real, and therefore all BBC stuff, both live and on-demand.

As an update - I got one, not the ae one, but one shipped from from Hong Kong with the same underlying technology at a lower price - and I can assure everyone that it is 100% amazing.

Sirius and XM do not appeal to you?
