Re: Which is the better product; Google Home or Amazon Echo?
Hi. That is good to know. Last October I traded in my Arcam Solo neo DABtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
music system for something different and high-end. The good thing about the
Arcam Solo Neo was it also had internet radio, unfortunately the station
listings were not accessible Via the hi-fi unit but they were via their
website. I think there were well over 1000 internet stations I could choose
from and I could search them via genre i.e. news, sport country music pop
music rock music religious spoken word etc.. I would imagine I'd need to do
a web search for stations in order to instruct the echo, or would the echo
do a search for me? Walter.

Yes, international stations can be accessed. Usually any station is started
by its call letters or its name.
A local station k d k a is started by that call name. Just using npr
anywhere starts the local public radio station nearest to you.
For example using a name; one of the bbc services is called bbc 4 which is a
mostly news source, bbc 4 xtra plays radio dramas. There are
several other bbc choices for music and regional services in the uk.
