AOL Radio and Slacker Radio have combined forces to create "AOL Radio powered by Slacker," a new version of AOL Radio. It's AOL on the front end, but is powered by the programming (digital and literal) of the Slacker Radio app, so one group brings the audience, and the other brings the technology.
It's just recently launched, and features over 200 AOL stations that you already know if you're a AOL Radio player user, including indie, alternative and electronic music stations. There's some improvements over the prevoius AOL Radio, including personalization features, less commercials and ESPN Radio and ABC News. In November you'll be able to subscribe to Radio Plus (Ad Free Radio) for $4 per month and Premium Radio $10 month for an ad free experience, otherwise you can go freemium with an ad-supported service.
The AOL Radio app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch can be upgraded when it's completed. For now, you can listen via the AOL Radio player at http://www.aolradio.com or http://aolradio.slacker.com/. No word on AOL Radio Android app yet, but I'm sure there'll be one in the future.
