How to Listen

The Krypton Radio stream is actually curated by us, but it is but one channel in the SonixCast service. Our music licensing is handled by them, through SOCAN in Canada, because it’s their stream, emanating from their server in Toronto. Though the Krypton Radio management team is mostly in the U.S., the radio stream does not actually come to you from the United States.

There are lots of ways to listen.  Apart from being the most popular sci-fi station on the planet, Krypton Radio is the most technologically connected science fiction radio station in the entire world.

Listen without using data on T-Mobile

T-Mobile has forged a special deal with Tune-In. You can now listen to Krypton Radio via Tune-In on your phone, as long as you want, without burning up any of your data plan to do it.

Yay! More for you!

Krypton Radio is on Every Smart Phone and Tablet

(We no longer support Windows phones; but that’s okay, Microsoft doesn’t either).

… except the Kindle Fire. Here’s how to get around that.

It’s true, we’re on every smart phone and tablet except the Kindle Fire, and that’s because the Krypton Radio app isn’t available on the Amazon app store. There are two ways around this problem.

  1. The first is to use the TuneIn app on the Kindle Fire. That will play Krypton Radio directly.
  2. The other is to enable “Apps from Unknown Sources” in your Kindle Fire’s settings using this tutorial, then download and install the APK file for the Krypton Radio app for Android using this link.
  3. If you have a Kindle Fire 2, it comes with Alexa. Just ask it “Alexa, play Krypton Radio”, and it will!
