    Can squeezebox work for my father who listens to Korean radio stations?

    My father is a retired post office carrier and he speaks mostly Korean. He's always listening to Korean stations on the internet on his laptop, when he's sleeping, etc. and since his birthday is coming up in a few days, I was wondering if I should get him this excellent product so he doesn't have to listen to his laptop.
    Although he has lived in the U.S. for over 30 years, his English isn't as good as it should be and all he wants to do is to tune in to his Korean stations. I want to be able to help him with that in a nutshell, so my question is: can he tune in to his Korean stations on the internet using this awesome product? =). I'd hate to try to buy it and find out it doesn't support his stations.
    Thank You =) very much!

    The radio service for SB is provided by radiotime.com. Searching for "korean" gives me more than 100 entries.

    This is one of the many benefits of Internet Radio, it is availible anywhere on the planet!
    Assuming, of course, you have a player and internet and the station streams online.

    To make sure his preferred stations are available you can simply download the free SBS server software and then navigate to Internet Radio where you can search by geography (as mfie suggested) or you can use the Search function and simply type in the station call letters. Note: Doing so will not play these on your computer, it's just a way to see what your father would have immediate access too on the SB player.

    On the off chance the radio station isn't on squeezeserver, on the web interface you can go to Internet Radio and there is a selection "Tune in URL" where you can enter the appropriate link.

    A word of warning - there are some internet radio formats which play on a PC but which the Squeezebox cannot play such as Flash, octoshape, streamtheworld stations.
