iHR Surpassed 70M Registered Users Faster
iHeartRadio today announced that it has surpassed 70 million registered users and continues to deliver record setting growth. iHeartRadio reached this milestone at a faster rate than any other radio or digital music service and even faster than Facebook. And the fact that iHeartRadio’s registered user milestone does not account for the millions of listeners who tune into iHeartRadio’s live radio streams without registering means its overall reach is even greater.
iHeartRadio has been downloaded more than 600 million times and offers listeners instant access to thousands of live radio stations, Custom Stations featuring a catalog of more than 20 million songs spanning more than 800,000 artists and thousands of on demand podcasts. Data shows that listeners predominately tune in to iHeartRadio via mobile devices (63 percent) and though live radio streams account for the majority of iHeartRadio listening, its users have created more than 580 million Custom Stations. Its social footprint also continues to expand, reaching nearly 80 million social media users across its network; and iHeartRadio accounted for 68 percent of all social engagement on Facebook and Twitter among all leading digital radio or music services – see graphic.
iHeartRadio also continues to expand its offering across devices, most recently announcing its availability on Xbox One, Apple Watch and Honda vehicles. iHeartRadio is currently available on more than 60 device platforms spanning in-home entertainment, wearables, gaming, mobile and auto.
