At SDPB we're trying to make listening to classical music as effortless as possible.
If you would like to listen via your desktop or laptop computer it's as easy as visiting the web page http://sdpb.org/classics - you can see a coverage map and get app links there as well.
Your other options include:
- Buy an HD Radio or tuner
- Listening on your smartphone, iPad, or Adroid tablet using the SDPB or NPR News app
- Listen over the air on our special SDPB TV channel
Let's break down your options for you.
There are many brands of HD radios with a wide variety of price points. There are now table top radios that have HD, WiFi, and bluetooth built in - neat! Swapping the tuner in your component stereo system can get you a quick upgrade of features as well. A search of the internet or visiting your favorite online store will yield several options for you. We are working with Best Buy in South Dakota to stock the Insignia radio. Check the coverage map to see if you are able to recieve our HD signal where you live.
If you have WiFi at home or at the office, or an unlimited data plan with your cell provider you can stream either SDPB Radio channel easily from the SDPB and NPR News apps. Plug in a pair of headphones or bluetooth to a speaker or your stereo and enjoy!
In a few weeks - around mid-January - we will be asking folks that recieve SDPB Television over-the-air to rescan and add new channels. One will be the SDPB Kids channel - another will be SDPB Classical.
