Tuner

Tuner – radio station player

In operation

Tuner taps into the wonderful radio-browser.info community database giving you access to over 29,000 stations from all over the globe.

On the left hand pane, there’s various presets. First is Discover which shows a random 10 stations from the community database. It’s a great way of finding new stations.

There’s trending and popular filtering too, the latter filters stations by popularity (it’s determined by the number of clicks each station has received).

The software also lets you browse stations by your resident country. As you can see, it’s displaying “United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland”. We’ve rarely ever seen a software app ever use the UK’s full name in this way as the country is almost always known as the United Kingdom, Britain, or UK.

One of the most useful features is the ability to save your favourite stations although sadly there’s no way to reorder them.

You can also filter stations by their genre: choose from 70s, 80s, 90s, Classical, Country, Dance, Electronic, House, Jazz, Pop, and Rock.

  1. Are any TV stations included or do you have to add IPTV m3u list .. love the blog on the G2 by the way ,bought one myself ( i5-6500T) and very pleased with its performance running Linux mint 😊

    1. Tuner taps into the wonderful radio-browser.info catalog. This catalog includes some TV streams, so I didn’t need to add the channels manually.

  2. You can change the station order and edit the favorites list by editing a json file. If you installed Tuner via Flatpak, it’s at ~/.var/app/com.github.louis77.tuner/data/com.github.louis77.tuner
