JAZZRADIO and SKY.FM, sister channels of DI.FM, come to Windows Phone

2013 was a year of anticipation as big apps kept on creeping into the Windows Phone Store left and right. One app we all really wanted was Digitally Imported, which finally came in late October after being in public beta for a few months. Now we’ve got two sister networks of Digitally Imported joining the Windows Phone Store: SKY.FM and JAZZRADIO. Let’s check these two apps out.

Digitally Imported (DI.FM) is an awesome app for streaming electronic dance music. It packs over 67 hand curated channels covering genres from trance and progressive to dubstep and trap. The Windows Phone app is really good and does exactly what you’d want in a music streaming app. JAZZRADIO and SKY.FM for Windows Phone take their design and navigation cues from the DI.FM app.

Fundamentally it appears that JAZZRADIO and SKY.FM are the same app as DI.FM, just with their own respective streams and branding. We already know that you get a ton of EDM content with Digitally Imported, but what can you look forward to with JAZZRADIO and SKY.FM?

Like Digitally Imported, you’re getting the following features with JAZZRADIO and SKY.FM for Windows Phone:

  • Pin channels to your start screen for quick access later
  • Not sure which channel to pick? Explore the easy-to-use Styles list
  • Stream music from the app or in the background while you do other things
  • Control audio and view track titles from the lock screen
  • Save your favorite channels for quick and easy access later
  • New Sleep Timer feature to fall asleep to music without draining your data plan
  • Set data streaming preferences for when using a Cellular vs. WiFi network
  • Share your favorite tracks and channels on Facebook, Twitter, or by email
  • Optional buffer bar with data display helps you keep track of your data usage

SKY.FM Screens

JAZZRADIO offers over 30 hand-programmed jazz music channels. SKY.FM is a little broader musically than the other two apps. With SKY.FM you’re getting access to over 60 genres like Pop, Rock, International, and more.

The best news? If you’re already a premium member on Digitally Imported it seems that your membership carries over to these two new apps (as do your login credentials). Premium members shell out cash to get access to higher quality streams with no advertisements. Premium membership will set you back just $4.99/month or $49.99/year.


We’re big fans of Digitally Imported, so we’re really happy to see these two sister apps join the Windows Phone Store. Hopefully we see more radio services from the company like ROCKRADIO and upcoming Fresca Radio join the Windows Phone mix.

In the meantime, you should definitely checkout JAZZRADIO and SKY.FM for Windows Phone. You can stream for free and see if this something you’d be interested in using on a regular basis for your music needs. Both apps are free in the Windows Phone Store, but you can get a subscription in the app to unlock higher quality streams with no ads. Links and QR codes below to grab them.

Thanks for the tip sri_tech!

  • Already downloaded couple of days ago,skyfm is my fav fm radio app,been using it since quite a long time on android, happy to see it on wp now
  • Same. As a long-time premium member I got an email straight from them when the apps were availiable, and downloaded them instantly. :D
  • I've been using DI.fm and Beem for Sky.fm with my premium account for a fair while now... I didn't even know that JazzRadio existed... The Bass Jazz station is epicly awesome... And what makes it better is my account works here too... (^_-)-☆
  • +1. I've been listening to SkyFM through my browser ... much mo betta.   Now I want an Antenne Bayern app...
  • Nothing like a bit of jazz on a Thursday morning!!
  • That's what I'm talking about. Which station/style are you liking the most?
  • Am listening to the fusion lounge at the mo, it's nearly. The weekend so time to pick up the tempo !!
  • Just downloaded the app, my favourite until now of JazzRadio is Smooth Lounge!
  • Just downloaded it! I gotta say, this is up there with songza. I love the app and how fast and fluid it is. Lots of lounging and easy listening stations.
  • Jazzradio?? Giggidy!
  • Anything like this for classical?
  • Try out SKY.FM. It has a handful of classical stations. Plus oodles of others.
  • Look for Calm Radio. It is an "official" app, and it has lots of different classical genres (composer, era, instrument, etc....). It's great too!
  • Man oh man. Jazz Radio is the best music streaming service I've heard on any Jazz music streaming service on ANY platform. They speak the language of jazz better than any other as well.  They cover them all from Progressive, to Straight Ahead, to Contemporary to Smooth to my fav, Avant-Garde. Other services lump them all together and play Chicago based gut bucket blues jazz from the 40's. This is uptempo, real grown folk music man. I'm loving this. Props Sam Sabri. Clearly your best post ever.
  • So glad you like it!
  • Just downloaded both and will try them over the weekend!
  • This is awesome! I've continuously gone to JAZZRadio through TuneIn lately. Nice to see an official app for it so I can channel through this instead.
  • Listening to it now, while on the bus. And ENJOYING IT! Thanks for the post, Sam!
  • Very good news. Happy to see the interest for windows phone is steadily increasing.
  • I'm digging the bass jazz station on the jazz app. Timer set. Time for bed. This app rocks.
  • Jazzhands! Actually, jazz reminds me of the Royal Caribbean cruises I have been on, sitting in Scooner Bar (whenever the pianoplayer is not there :P) 
  • Actually, I've been enjoying JazzRadio for a couple of years now, via the TuneIn Radio app.  It had all the JazzRadio streams, my favorite being the Uptempo Smooth Jazz one.  I'm not sure I want to take up space on my phone with an app that ONLY streams the JazzRadio threads as opposed to one that gets all those PLUS many other streams.
