Whether you're searching for the latest hits or all-time favourites, Stingray Music has something for everyone
Music is the soundtrack of our lives. Whether it’s the latest summer jams, classic rock tunes ripe for singing along to or love songs that conjure up memories, a great playlist is a welcome addition to any day.
The Stingray Music mobile app, which is free to customers of Rogers digital TV packages (excluding Starter TV), provides plenty of tunes to entertain you. And judging from the top three Stingray music channels, listeners have diverse tastes.
As the number-one Stingray channel, Hit List offers up a never-ending list of chart-topping hits from top artists like Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, Mumford and Sons, Katy Perry and others. It’s essentially your top-40 station. If you’re looking for a playlist to get a party started or entertain you during your commute to school or work with the top radio tunes, this is the channel for you.
Who doesn’t love a great country tune you can belt out while making dinner or heading out on the open road? Hot Country features all of your favourite country hits from the last decade, from superstars like Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Jason Aldean, Dierks and Bentley, and Kenny Chesney. It’s the perfect sing-a-long channel, whether you need a pick-me-up or songs to wind down to.
With classic rock hits from the late ’60s to the ’80s, it’s an ideal channel to relive your youth or bop to tunes of yesteryear that you feel connected to, no matter what your age. Enjoy iconic songs from bands like The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin, and recognizable tunes from hit-makers like Eric Clapton, Tom Petty and David Bowie.
How do you access the Stingray Music app?
The free app (yes, free!) is available at both the Apple App Store and Google Play, and actually comes as part of your subscription to Rogers Cable TV*. Once downloaded, it gives you access more than 2,000 music channels across tons of genres, along with the top-three examples noted above. Listen at home or from a mobile device while you’re on the go.
To join, download the app, sign up for an account using your email or Facebook login, authenticate through the Stingray Music channel on your TV, and you’re set.
In addition to selecting music by channel, you can also browse personalized recommendations, or search for tunes via the Vibes channels. Combine up to three filters, such as activity, mood, theme, genre or era to listen to expertly curated channels for every occasion.
A sleep timer shuts a channel off when desired, and auto play resumes the same channel the next time the app is launched. Create up to eight profiles, with each person’s favourites saved.
Additionally, you can cast Stingray’s streaming tunes over AirPlay or Google Chromecast or Chromecast Audio, or add the app to Sonos music services to play through your home speakers. Connect your phone to an Android Auto system and continue listening to Stingray tunes through the car’s audio system.
