Available in 48 countries, DTS Connected Radio’s content is sourced from 48+ thousand radio stations, 40+ million tracks, 4+ million albums, 1+ million artist bios, and more – all aggregated, curated, and personalized to create the richest and most relevant in-vehicle radio listening experience.

Leveraging the world’s largestdatabase of broadcast metadata – including up-to-date and world class music data – DTS Connected Radio features big beautiful art, comprehensive artist and album information and imagery, songs, playlists, content recommendations, lyrics, local events, podcasts, and more, enriching broadcasts from thousands of radio stations around the world.

DTS Connected Radio’s design flexibility, global coverage, secure and scalable network, and privacy compliant platform are engineered to make OEM adoption easy and customizable. The DTS Connected Radio ecosystem enables each OEM and Tier 1 to create a feature-rich, flexible HMI design while utilizing low data/computer resources in the vehicle and is compatible with analog AM/FM and global digital radio formats including DAB, DAB+ and HD RadioTM.
