What’s locked and what’s not – important notice to our readers

As you may have read previously, when we re-launched the radioinfo website a couple of months ago, on August 13, we temporarily made the site completely free. And as we foreshadowed last week, we were going to start to revert to being a subscription site this week by making some parts of the site available to paid subscribers only. That process has now begun. Below is a simple guide to what’s locked and what’s not.

Thank you to all our Loyal Subscribers

We would like you to know that we are humbled by, and grateful for, the fact that our paid subscribers have continued to renew in record numbers, thus underpinning radioinfo’s sustainability well into the future. We owe it to you to ensure that you are rewarded for your loyalty and receive value for your money.

More free content than ever before

At the same time, for casual users of radioinfo, there’ll be more free content open to you than ever before.

And there’ll be ways for you to win a free subscription.

The simplest way to know whether something is locked or not is to look out for this little lock symbol.


 Wherever it appears, it means that that story or feature is locked.
