Has anyone signed up for this? I listen to DI.fm ambient and trance stations from iTunes all the time, and I'm thinking about buying a cheaper model iRiver just to have that radio on it. Does anyone know how it works? I mean if I bought a 128mb iRiver, would it only be able to have 128mb of radio on it? If that's the case that's dumb and I won't do it, although I don't see how theres another way to do it. For some reason I thought it could stream like a regular radio signal would. Who knows, but if anyone does please let me know!
Well you decide what's 'dumb' with expectations of a 128 MB player, but see this link (then take a tour, how it works) for an explanation. It looks like its kinda a mix of Audible (audiobooks) and Podcasting, in that you make a selection, 'subscribe', then download the program (which can transfer to your player). Assuming the bitrates very from music and talk, you could have a few hours of the former and at least double that of the latter. NPR just unfortunately moved over to Audiofeast from Audible (leaving Mac users out in the cold).
