I Will write an ALEXA skill that allows people to listen to your online radio stream

(ie Alexa, open (station name))

"You are now listening to (station name)"

then the stream plays.

72 hour turn-around, after i am in receipt of payment & additional required information from you.

 (additional time required for Amazon Skill Certification (to be listed in the skill store, etc)

This is for a basic skill that starts,stops playing the stream. $30.00 USD
Additional capabilities can be added on for an additional fee.

Get a $5 discount on your order when stations you refer to us complete and pay for an order!

*** Amazon requires the stream to be encrypted with SSL (HTTPS) or it won't play. ***

You can work with your hosting provider to ensure that works. Or, we can help you find appropriate resources.

Being listed on tune-in is okay, and it does work, however they also insert ads into what your listeners hear. A custom skill does not, also, a custom alexa skill can help you stay on those devices free if tunein decides to start charging a fee to be listed and/or goes away

It already works for my radio without ever having had to pay for this service and without even having requested it. In fact it is enough to be referenced on TuneIn Radio.

See my edited post above. There are some advantages to having a custom skill.

 I am writing today to offer you a proof-of concept for allowing people to listen to your radio station(s) via a customized skill for the Amazon Echo line of smart speakers, and Amazon Echo Show devices.

I am convinced there is a significant benefit to having a custom skill in the Amazon skill store.

I can send today (upon request) a  short video demo of how such a custom skill would work - which is strictly proof of concept for your review.

I would welcome the opportunity to help you build a bigger listening audience.
A custom skill in the Amazon Skill Store affords you more flexibility and control.

One advantage would be the ability to thank listeners with a message immediately when they open the stream. To open the stream, listeners speak " Alexa, (open), (start), (play) < your station name>"  and the audio would start.

You also have the (advanced) option of having an audio welcome message play before the stream starts ....

Or, with the basic option, having the Alexa voice say "Starting  <your station name>" (slight variation to this phrase may be needed)" (or any variation thereof). Then, the stream would immediately start.

The "Basic" Start/Stop skill with graphics (on devices with a screen) is $35.00* USD. Graphics, and text displayed, and Alexa voice phrases spoken can be customized to meet your needs.

Advanced options are subject to availability, and are available at additional negotiable cost. Additional information about advanced options, and costs are available upon request.

Please let me know if you have further questions, and which of these would best meet your needs.

You can see a sample on our YouTube Channel >

Thank you.

Alexa only works with real stations that hare registered with one of the "royalty" organizations. And it doesn't even work with all of them

What you have said....is simply not true.


With Very few exceptions - I can get Alexa to play almost ANY stream.

Licensing is a completely separate issue. Station owners are responsible to obtain their own licensing. I am not offering licensing, I am offering connectivity.
