SHOUTcast Internet radio now on Popcorn Hour hubs

Syabas on Monday added a new functionality to its Popcorn Hour A-110 and C-200 network media hubs, allowing them to access AOL's free SHOUTcast Radio Directory. This will let users access over 32,000 MP3-based radio stations using their Popcorn Hour remote controls, bringing it to their home theater set-ups or living rooms on their TVs. The two Popcorn Hour hubs already support a wide range of digital audio and video files, and can stream audio and video content from partners that include Vuze, CNET TV, CBS, CNN and others.

At the same time, Syabas said it will port the SHOUTcast application to its DAVID software development kit and will allow further apps to be offered at its app store.

The Popcorn Hour line through the add-on becomes one of the first hubs of the sort to support SHOUTcast directly, as many either only support generic Internet radio stations or proprietary services like Pandora and Rhapsody.
