A moderator on Radionomy’s Tech Support forum posted the following message,
“(They) decided to geo-block radio stations broadcasting in some countries. These countries represent only a limited part of the audience. In these countries, a specific message will be broadcast to the listeners connecting to the station.”
These countries are NOT GEO-BLOCKED:
- United States of America
- Canada (Removed July, 2016)
- Most Central American and Caribbean countries (e.g. Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico)
- European Union (28 states – includes the Baltic states, but excludes Switzerland and countries that were formerly part of Yugoslavia)
- New Zealand
- Africa (most countries)
- China (including. Hong Kong)
These countries ARE GEO-BLOCKED:
- Russia (except a few areas)
As of this blog post, listeners in Radionomy’s affected Geo-Block country list are greeted with the sounds of “Lounge Music”. Listeners in affected countries have other options.
- Purchase a VPN, which will give listeners a US feed of our Radionomy stream. We recommend VPN Express, which has a convenient app with affordable options.
- Listeners can also download Opera web browser. The browser has a built in VPN service and listeners can choose what country to use.
BREAKING: as of February 2017, the YourMuze.FM stream is no longer available, as the website no longer is functional.
Listeners in the U.S. are NOT affected by Geo-Block, yet. The list may change, pending the outcome of Sony Music’s lawsuit against Radionomy for alleged unpaid royalties.
