AOL Radio: Now with CBS
The New York Times reports that Arbitron rating show that AOL Radio has a larger weekly audience than any other web radio service. But the cost of providing the bandwidth for radio streams and paying royalties for the rights to stream the music is high, and the company has yet to turn a profit from its online radio efforts.
The deal with CBS replaces a similar partnership AOL had with XM Satellite Radio.
The new AOL Radio Player also features support for Safari, preset buttons and support for pausing radio streams and skipping some songs.
