vintage Liveradio: digital gets a vintage makeover!
To enhance your enjoyment of listening to web radio stations at home, Orange is launching the vintage Liveradio:
* access to over 5 000 radio stations and 11 000 podcasts* (news, sport, music and comedy) from around the world
* personalise content and easily download tracks from http://liveradio.orange.fr
* excellent sound quality
* easy-to-use – thanks to its special remote control
with its wooden casing, the vintage Liveradio has a “retro” look
Connect it via Wi-Fi or Ethernet to your livebox or any other Internet router, so that you can listen to it anywhere in the house.
The vintage Liveradio also has a media player function, so that you can listen to music stored on your computer.
It is easy to use with its three pre-set buttons on the front, an LCD screen, an infrared remote control, and eight buttons giving you direct access to radio stations. It has a USB port so that you can listen to audio content (WMA, MP3, WAV and Real) with its key, an MP3 player or its integrated FM Tuner. With the liveradio interfaces, you can save your favourite tracks thanks to the “favourites” button.
In partnership with Audiolib and litteratureaudio.com, Orange offers audio books on its interactive radio service, Liveradio. The first chapters of Audiolib’s new releases are available as well as the whole works released by litteratureaudio.com. Audio books can be found under “podcasts” as each chapter is similar to a podcast. The listener can choose a book or a chapter, and navigate from chapter to chapter via a menu.
The vintage liveradio will be available from 5 March in France Orange stores, by dialling 1014** or visiting www.orange.fr for € 99 (maximum recommended price).
It is available for all customers with an ADSL connection via a livebox or any other type of modem.
It can also be loaned to journalists by contacting the Orange press relations service.
