RadioplayerThe UK's all-in-one web radio platform Radioplayer is developing "ways for radio stations to offer live, simultaneous video streams via connected TVs, including synchronized ads," reports New Media Age.

“Currently, the visual user experience for radio on TV sets is very clunky," said Radioplayer UK MD Michael Hill. "We think we can improve on both the navigation and what you see when you are listening. We will offer radio stations the ability to run live video content and ads, along with display slideshows, album art or any other visual that individual station may want.”
