Feed Your Ears...

SoniXFM™ is a media content aggregation and popularization platform developed in 2009 in conjunction with Sony Interactive for their now defunct 'Milk' media project. Other music services began to whitelabel the platform in 2010 including Amazon, Apple and Microsoft. As of this writing, the SoniXFM platform has been integrated by over 200 music services and device manufacturers reaching an estimated 140 million consumers daily. Specific SoniXFM applications for Android, IOS and other devices are currently under development.

Content Sources

SoniXFM derives data from SoniXCast's extensive broadcast network (SBN) and other public sources like Xiph.org (icecast), ShoutCast.com (shoutcast), iHeartRadio.com (terrestrial) and the FCC database (terrestrial). In total over 40 providers feed the SoniXFM aggregation service with an estimated 2 million unique media content providers.

There are two main content provider classifications:


  • Channels (i.e. CSNX-###x): are terrestrial and internet radio stations operating under the SoniXCast broadcast license. Each channel in the SoniXCast Broadcast Network has its own unique call sign and broadcast quality is optimized by the AnyCastIP network.

  • Stations (i.e. WKRP): are third party content providers who manage their own licensing and streaming technology. The quality of stations vary widely as SoniXFM has no control over source broadcast quality.
  • Content Weighting

    Ratings are provided by a myriad of sources including Nielson for terrestrial ratings in the US and Canada. Statistics collection is maintained internally in order to eliminate listener count 'fudging' often seen in amatuer webcasting.

    Each media content provider is qualified by two main criteria:


  • Quality: refers to the perceived listening quality of the stream which is based upon bitrate, connection speed, startup buffer (for third party content providers) and overall availability. Quality is rated in increments of 10 with 10 being the lowest and 100 being the best.

  • Popularity: refers to the overall popularity of the content provider and is based upon the predicted potential listeners the provider can maintain over a 24 hour period. Popularity is rated from -100 to 100 percent (represented by arrow up or down respectively) with a minus value meaning a downward moving trend and a positive value meaning an upward moving trend. The percentage value represents how far a content provider is away from reaching their maximum predicted potential.
  • Content Provider Listings

    Our partners demand the highest possible statistical accuracy, therefore there is no way to simply 'join' SoniXFM. The fastest way to get listed is to order a SoniXCast professional (not CentovaCast at this time) account which is listed automatically upon provisioning. If you are an independant web radio or SoniXCast CentovaCast user, getting listed at Xiph.org or Shoutcast.com generally shows up on SoniXFM within 24 hours. Terrestrial radio stations are added automatically upon registration with country specific government regulating agencies (i.e. FCC in the US).

    Listing Maintenance

    SoniXFM uses internal statistics collection to ensure the highest possible statistical accuracy and by design, there is no way to manually change any information collected. Statistics collection occurs multiple times per hour and only by ensuring that the metadata of your streaming server is correct will ensure a correct listing at SoniXFM.

    Important metadata tags used in statistics collection:


  • Title: ensure your station name (title) does not contain any language specific characters or special characters that are not supported in the UTF-8 specification.

  • Description (optional): Like Title, ensure the entry is UTF-8.

  • Track: commonly known as 'song title' or 'currently playing' on most streaming systems, ensure that the entry supports the UTF-8 standard. Quite often this is achieved by ensuring mp3 tags are correct, but some source (broadcasting) clients also support playback metadata formatting.

  • Genre: Statistics collection recognizes these standardized genres (Wikipedia List of Music Genres) which are classified into a set of primary genres. Add as many sub-genres you like, however the closer they are with the primary genre will determine how easily your station or channel is found by consumers.
