Dear Valued Sony Customers,

The Internet radio service SHOUTcast has changed their API (Application Programming Interface) from December 2014 and as a result, the SHOUTcast Internet Radio service will not be available except for the preset stations. After much consideration, Sony has decided to end the provision of this service due to difficulty in supporting changes to the API.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your support of Sony products.
