General

  1. Is Cruise FM a pirate radio station?

    No. Cruise FM is fully licensed for web broadcasting by PRS for Music and PPL and is indicated by the use of their logos on the Cruise FM home page, and there are links to their websites on the Links page of this website. This is a condition of the licences that we hold.

  2. How do I listen to Cruise FM?

    When you log onto the Cruise FM website, you can press play or launch a standalone player from the home page.

    You can also visit the LISTEN LIVE page which gives you several options of players that you can use to listen to the station, such as Windows Media Player, Winamp and Realplayer.

    You can also access Cruise FM's feed through your mobile device by using the tunein and Pure Connect apps. There is also access to the station through WiFi Internet Radio's and their portals and smart televisions too, as well as your PC and laptop.

  3. How can I listen to Cruise FM in another room away from the computer?

    You can now purchase and use legally in the UK a micro transmitter which you can connect to your computer which transmits any audio from your computer to a normal FM radio anywhere in your home.

    You do need to tune the transmitter to a spare frequency in your area.

    If you have an internet radio (WiFi), such as a PURE Evoke Flow, you can use that as an alternative. All you need to do is search for "Cruise FM" from the station list.

  4. Does Cruise FM broadcast on an FM frequency?

    No. Cruise FM does not actually broadcast on a frequency on the FM waveband, and is only available through the internet. The Cruise FM name has been used as the name was used between 1995 and 1999 for a station broadcast from Andover for Salisbury, Andover and Romsey using an FM frequency on the ComTel cable television network.

  5. How do I contact a programme on Cruise FM?

    There are several ways to contact programmes broadcast on Cruise FM. The simplest and quickest way is to use the CONTACT US button at the top of the page, or you can e-mail us at studio@cruisefmuk.com or you can text us on 07717 576462 (Standard Network Rates Apply).

    Some programmes, however, have their own contact details. If you use the LINKS button above and go to the individual programmes website you will find their contact details there.

  6. When I navaigate away from the Cruise FM Homepage I lose the audio of the station. How do I keep listening while surfing the net?

    The player embedded within the home page only works while you are on this page and disappears as soon as you navigate away from it, unless you have selected the STANDALONE PLAYER. To keep listening to Cruise FM while you do other things with your computer you need to visit the LISTEN LIVE page and select the stream you would like to listen to. You can select to listen using the DEFAULT PLAYER, or you can use WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER, WINAMP or REAL PLAYER. If you are unsure which player to use and you are using ANY version of Windows then opt for the WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER as this is preloaded within the operating system.

  7. Can I listen to Cruise FM on a WiFi Radio?

    Yes. Cruise FM is available through The Lounge which provides the service to the PURE range of internet radios, and also through vtuner which services many other manufacturers radios. We use a PURE Evoke Flow radio in the office to listen to the off-air stream of the programming.

    Yes, you can listen to Cruise FM on your smartphone, and we have successfully used a Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic, HTC Wildfire android phone and also Apple's iPhone. We have found the best apps to use is the Pure Connect and tune-in apps which are available on both the Google Play and App Store.

     

  9. Can I listen to Cruise FM on my Smart Television?

    Yes, providing you have access to the tunein or shoutcast portals. We have sucessfully set this facility up on a Panasonic Smart Viera set.
