        AIR API

        Broadcaster FAQ

        OVERVIEW

        AIR is our broadcaster API that offers several methods for broadcasters and other publishers to send playlist information to TuneIn in real-time!

        When you implement AIR, your listeners will be able to:

        • Discover your station by searching for artists or songs commonly played
        • Browse station playlist history on TuneIn mobile and TuneIn.com

        BROADCAST SOFTWARE

        For starters, you will need your TuneIn assigned station ID. Your station ID, can be found at the end of the URL for your station page when accessing it from https://tunein.com. For example, the station ID for ‘tunein.com/radio/tuneinstation-s######/’ would be ‘s######’.

        BROADCAST SOFTWARE

        Some broadcasting software make it easy to use our AIR API via a plugin or with input fields specifically created for your TuneIn station Id, partnerId and partnerKey to be placed in.

        Airtime Pro provides instructions for adding API credentials to their software here

        Broadcast Electronics’ The Radio Experience includes a plugin that can be downloaded here

        BASICS

        Requests to the AIR API are very simple. An example call appears as follows…

        GET http://air.radiotime.com/Playing.ashx?partnerId=&partnerKey=&id=&title=Bad+Romance&artist=Lady+Gaga

        Your partnerId replaces , partnerKey replaces , and stationId, including the preliminary ‘s’ replaces . Your title and artist information should be set to be updated by your broadcast software in correspondence with the currently playing song.

        SPECIFICS

        Input:

        Parameter Description
        title The name of the song
        artist The name of the associated album
        album The name of the associated album
        commercial Set to true if the now playing broadcast is in commercial rather than a song

        Output:
        Check the status code for success or failure result (200 means success)

        NOTES

        For now playing updates, please submit only once at the start of the song. Do not use a timer to submit a song, or submit a song multiple times. Your requests may be blocked if you send multiple requests within a short period. Make sure to include an “s” before your station ID. Information does not update on the TuneIn.com site in real-time. Changes to station information can take up to a day to appear. If the station is going to a commercial or other non-song playing period, send the request with the commercial=true flag.
