Owners of BMW models equipped with the apps option and MINI models equipped with MINI Connected can now enjoy a fully integrated Stitcher SmartRadio app experience in their vehicle. Stitcher SmartRadio is the mobile leader in on-demand news, entertainment, sports and talk radio delivering over 10 000 radio shows and live stations to customers around the globe.
BMW and MINI owners can create their own personal talk radio station experience with the freshest episodes from the latest on-demand news, entertainment, sports, talk and live radio programmes streamed directly to their vehicle's infotainment system via the Stitcher SmartRadio app on their iPhone.
In addition to creating stations that run the programs users already know and like, a special feature helps users discover new content. Known as the Smart Station, this feature recommends other programmes listeners may like, based on their personal preferences automatically identified by existing program selections.
