AccuRadio has been around for about 14 years, first launching as an experiment in 2000. This is an extremely long time in the internet radio business, and the company says they are profitable.

The service has announced that they’ve now raised $2.5 million in a Series A round of funding.  The money came from NantWorks LLC, a company headed by Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong.

AccuRadio will spend the money on PR and marketing. CEO Kurt Hanson said:

“AccuRadio has industry-leading measures of customer satisfaction, including Average Time Spent Listening in Webcast Metrics and its iOS and Android app user ratings, and with the help of this funding, we believe we can really take the brand to the next level.”

    Not many people know about AccuRadio. It is actually actually a pretty good service. They are what I would call real internet radio. Pre-built stations that can be customized, but they are not personal playlists like Pandora.

    I am very surprised they could pull $2.5 million in funding though. Their user base is actually really small compared to services like Pandora and Spotify.

    Internet radio, what an amazing, new concept – not. Anyone ever hear of Live365? Sheesh.
