This news has been a long time coming. Ever since the Coast to Coast AM app was launched for iOS in the summer of 2009, I have been looking forward to the Android version to be released. Then, last summer, George Noory announced that an Android app was indeed under development. Then came the teases. Then came delay, after delay, after delay. Then silence. Whether some technical difficulty derailed the schedule or a desire for a simpler distribution and update method are responsible, I do not know. But C2C has opted for live streaming and playback of archived shows via the mobile browser. It is functional now.
As is the case with any other method of access, only Coast Insider (previously Streamlink) members can listen to the audio. Subscriptions can be had at $6.95 monthly, $29.95 for 6 months, or $54.95 for 12 months. If you’re already a subscriber, simply go to http://www.coasttocoastam.com, tap “shows,” and select an episode. You’ll be prompted to sign in if you haven’t already. Listen away! You can rate hour segments as well.
No, you won’t be playing abduction while listening via Coast Mobile, as you can with the iPhone app, but our Android solution for a nightly paranormal fix has arrived. And this decade-plus loyalist is satisfied.
EDIT: One downside of mobile streaming: music is played during commercial breaks on archived episodes, as is done during the live broadcast. Downloaded MP3s are still free of interruptions, with the breaks simply edited out.
