We’ve been around since 2009, so we’ve had a lot of years to infiltrate pretty much every corner of the Internet. There are lots of ways to listen. Apart from being the most popular sci-fi station on the planet, SCIFI.radio is the most technologically connected science fiction radio station in the entire world.
SCIFI.radio is on Every Smart Phone and Tablet
Just go to your app store and search for SCIFI.radio, then download the app. It’s that easy, and it’s free!
… and we’re on the Kindle Fire and Roku, too – via TuneIn and GetMeRadio.
More Ways to Listen
GetMeRadio also works on Alexa devices – but only with our old name, “Krypton Radio”. To use that on Alexa or Google smart speakers, say “open Get Me Radio”, and then when it asks what station you want, say “Krypton Radio.”
Listen via Alexa, Google Home, or Cortana
We are listed on TuneIn – however, though we play just fine from the TuneIn web site or through their phone apps, for some reason this doesn’t work via Amazon’s smart speakers, and possibly not through Google Home devices either.
What does work is using our old name, Krypton Radio, using the GetMeRadio skill instead of TuneIn. This same fix gets around TuneIn’s geoblocking of non-U.K. stations if you’re in the U.K.
Thanks to TuneIn screwing up and losing their safe harbor protections under U.K. law by curating their own content streams instead of just acting as an internet radio and podcast search engine, they can no longer play any non-UK radio stations within the UK, with only a very few exceptions.
The workaround for this is to use the GetMeRadio skill, app, or web site. GetMeRadio was not named in the suit, does not offer curated streams and still has its safe harbor protections. We’ve tested it, and the GetMeRadio player skill on your Alexa Echo device works just fine for playing SCIFI.radio in the UK. You have to say ‘krypton radio‘ when it asks for what station you want to play, though. For some reason GetMeRadio doesn’t pull up SCIFI.radio when you say ‘scifi dot radio’.

Listen Using iTunes
Yes, we’re even listed on iTunes, but under our old name Krypton Radio. We’re grandfathered in under that name, and iTunes is no longer accepting internet radio station listings, so we’re stuck with the old name.
Try using the iTunes app on Windows or OSX and press CTRL-U or Command-U and enter the stream address directly. You can also select View->Media Kind->Internet Radio->Eclectic->Krypton Radio.
Accessing the Streams Directly
If you’re using Linux, you can access SCIFI.radio via any of our direct access streams, via XMMS, Amarok, Banshee or other stream players.
Listen in Second Life or OpenSim
For your land or parcel, go to Land Options, and enter any of the stream addresses above for your parcel audio media settings, and SCIFI.radio will play whenever somebody visits your virtual land.
