Soho Radio is an award-winning, independent radio station, founded in 2014, that broadcasts live from both London and New York. With 200,000 monthly listeners, it has grown to be an influential voice for music and culture. It has hosted the likes of Mark Ronson, Paul Weller, Norman Jay, and Jools Holland among many other luminaries of the music world.
As an online radio station, the uptime of Soho Radio’s website and live streams is critically important. When they experienced serious issues with their streaming services, they called Novagram in the hope of getting things working again.
I recommend Novagram to any business looking for reliable, friendly and professional web development.
After our investigation, it was clear that Soho Radio’s website needed a live-stream and page-loading overhaul which would allow users to listen to their favourite radio live stream or recent episode whilst navigating the website. This also needed to be possible without any interruption, and without opening any new popups or windows.
Novagram devised and implemented a new system that allowed the website pages to load seamlessly without reloading pages in the traditional way. This allowed users to continue browsing website pages whilst listening to a stream.
Novagram also restructured the existing streaming widgets to work in harmony with one another—allowing only a single stream to be playing at any one time. Previous to this, multiple streams could be playing at the same time.
We continue to work with Soho Radio.
