Yesterday, Brad Hill of RAIN News wrote a glowing review of XAPPmedia’s B100 skill after trying it out for himself. The B100 skill was developed with Federated Media to provide a full interactive radio experience on Amazon’s Alexa as it offers three choices for listeners: live-streaming, on-demand listening and podcasts. In the article, XAPPmedia CEO Pat Higbie states that “Alexa provides a new opportunity for broadcasters to bring radio back into the home and make radio an interactive listening experience for the first time.” Hill could not agree more:
“In our view, Higbie is spot-on about the opportunity for broadcasters. While streaming music is difficult for broadcast to compete with for economic and technology reasons, and while commercial U.S. radio has not plumbed the possibilities of podcasting as public radio has, the sudden rise of voice-controlled speakers like Alexa gives radio an opportunity to fashion a unique experience on the digital side.”
