RokuGuide Quick Look:THIS CHANNEL IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE IN THE ROKU CHANNEL STORE
Earbits is free music from independent artists. There are over 200 "stations" available, consisting of hand-picked music, but giving you the ability to skip over the songs you don't want to hear.
Stations are offered in nearly two dozen genres, including pop, rock, country, jazz, world, blues, Christian, and classical. Within each genre, you can listen to the main station featuring all music from the category, or you can narrow your preference with sub-genre stations. Counry music, for example, includes honky tonk, bluegrass, and alternative country among it's stations. If you like hard rock, you can also select from sub-genres that include punk, stoner, and industrial.
There are no commercials, but you won't find any Top 40 songs. The Earbits website gives a good summary of their mission: "Our job is to showcase high quality independent music and to help bring you and our artists closer together. Earbits is founded on the idea that radio is the perfect platform to help hard working artists reach a new audience, and turn that audience into their fans and customers. Focusing on bands that deserve this kind of exposure and help is not only more fun and rewarding, but we believe it's the future of the music industry."
