The Reference puts RTBF Radio Channels on Microsoft Media Center

Author: Brice Le Blévennec

Yesterday at the Circle of Media organized by Microsoft Belgium, our colleague Thomas De Vos from The Reference had the opportunity to present one of our most interesting projects of this first quarter.

If you have a Microsoft Media Center in your living room, you’re now able to listen to the five RTBF radio stations (La Première, Musiq 3, PureFM, Classic 21 and VivaCité) in three different ways: live streaming, on demand (= RTBF podcasting for the couch potato) or “à la carte”. This third feature lets you subscribe to a range of generic threads gathering all the radio shows around a common theme : cinema, sports, economy, politics…

The interface has been designed exclusively for the Media Center remote control and is fully compatible with both Xp and Vista editions. Watch our video to discover how it looks like :
