SCA integrates with Sonos smart speakers

Sonos listeners can now hear Hit and Triple M live or catch-up by adding the station apps directly to their Sonos systems.

iHeartRadio/ARN integrated with the speakers during the last quarter of 2017, including all ARN stations (KIIS 1065, KIIS 101.1, Mix 102.3, 96FM, 97.3, WSFM 101.7, GOLD 104.3, Cruise, 4KQ) and iHeartRadio stations available on the speakers through the app.
The Hit Network app now gives access to all Hit stations in the network, including 2Day, Fox, and SEA in the Gold Coast and Central Coast plus all the other Hit stations across the country. Listeners can also access SCA’s Hit digital channels: Buddha Hits, Old Skool Hits and Easy Hits.
The Triple M app gives listeners access to all Triple M stations in the network, plus Mix 94.5 in Perth, 4TO 102.3 in Townsville, KOFM 102.9 in Newcastle, 2GO 107.7 on the Central Coast.  And Triple M listeners can also get the Triple M digital stations; Triple M Classic Rock, Triple M Greatest Hits, Triple M Modern and Triple M Country.
SCA recently announced that Hit Network and Triple M news and sports briefings are available on the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa suite of connected speaker products.
SCA’s Chief Creative Office, Guy Dobson said “We’re delighted to bring our radio content directly to the Sonos platform. As a leader in the smart speaker market, they are a natural fit as SCA looks to make our content available on all platforms and products that our listeners want to use to listen to the radio”.
Sonos’s Country Director of Australia, Rennie Addabo said “At Sonos we are all about turning silent homes into soulful ones so we’re thrilled this partnership gives Australian Sonos owners the choice to listen to their favourite radio stations out loud, in any room in their house, through their Sonos system.  

“Radio lovers can now use their Sonos Controller (their Sonos app) to switch over to any SCA radio station they want to listen to – so, country in the bedroom or classic rock in the kitchen – it’s now all at their fingertips, adding even more variety to Sonos’ wide range of streaming services.”
