Note about other third-party mobile apps
There are many mobile apps out there that are designed to tune in Japanese language stations and may include J1 along with other stations. While we do not object to those apps, J1 does not provide any assistance to these apps. If there are any network changes at J1, only the supported methods shown above would be updated with the revised information. J1 recommends that you install our own mobile app or if you want to have a choice of stations to listen to in a single app, download the TuneIn app. If you are an app developer and want to add J1 to your radio player app, please visit our Developer's Page.
Thank you for listening to J1!
