iHeartRadio Canada–which Bell Media owns the exclusive rights to in Canada–has expanded its app offerings with an ‘enhanced’ version today. According to the company, the app now features over 1,000 live radio stations from a variety of genres from across North America.

New additions include stations from Eastern Canada’s Evanov Communications says iHeartRadio Canada, which calls itself “the fastest-growing music service in Canada,” with on average 1.8 million actively monthly users, since launching back in October 2016. The service is being called the number one “Canadian radio streaming service” by Bell Media.

Rob Farina, Bell Media’s Head of Radio Content, Strategy, and iHeartRadio Canada, said in a statement, “With further access to diverse music and content, iHeartRadio Canada continues to bring unmatched access to Canadians with more platforms, exclusive features, live events, and more artist engagement.”

iHeartRadio Canada says they now have over 1,000 stations, over 10,000 podcasts and more commercial-free music streams.

The new app update now requires users to create a Bell Media login to use the app, asking for an email, password, gender, date of birth and more (when trying to add to Sonos at least). Users in iTunes have given 1-star reviews because of this new update and its login requirement.

  • Most of those mainstream stations (and even live events) play garbage. I’ll pass.
    Example: “big sean” (an American) getting more stage time than better Canadian artists (even though he had an entire show at the same location a few weeks prior). His lyrics are trash and this is what are generation is growing up with.
