Listen to Virgin Radio on your Nokia…but it’s not what you think.
Virgin Radio Review
by on March 10, 2011
Virgin Radio may be no more in the UK having rebranded as Absolute Radio, but the name lives on in this app. However, bizarrely for an app in the UK Ovi Store, instead of playing you Absolute Radio instead, it plays Virgin Radio Italy at you.
This may be no bad thing if you’re Italian or can understand Italian, especially as the music selections are pretty good, indeed it’s probably the same stuff as the UK stations would have played anyway. The app works very well actually and the streams buffer and play extremely quickly, while you can easily flick between the different stations available.
There are several stations available, Virgin Radio itself as well as an alternative-specific version and then two rock stations – classic rock and hard rock. Both are surprisingly good stations to listen to. Finally, there are two more stations covering the 1980s and 1990s respectively. However, if you’d like something a little more UK-specific there is an Absolute Radio app in the Ovi Store which we’ve previously reviewed.
