Lots of Blender Stream Choices: Dead Air On One Does Not Mean Dead Air On All

Sometimes internet routing weirdness happens in various parts of the USA (where most of our streams are hosted) that is way beyond our control. 

If The Blast Blender stream you are on goes down, try the next one down the chain. 

Our streams are hosted in various locations.  For example, the 320kbps stream is hosted in Salt Lake City; the 160k stream (found on our "All Streams" page and our "Mobile Blending" page) is hosted in Chicago, the 128k stream in Ashburn, Virginia.  On March 20th, 2015, for example, in the morning, first there was some internet weirdness in the western USA that affected our Salt Lake City stream; while our other streams were fine.   The SLC stream routing cleared up, and then there was bad internet congestion a few minutes later affecting east coast USA traffic…impacting our Ashburn stream. 

So…if one stream goes down, hit the next button down the chain in our app or on our website and most likely, it will work.

320 KBPS Hi-Fi Streaming At The Blast and The Blast Blender!

 

The Blast and The Blast Blender have upgraded our top MP3 streams to 320 kbps!  This is high-end transparent CD quality audio streaming!  We found a good deal with a solid streaming provider, but the only drawback of this stream is that it is on a port that is blocked by some school and office firewalls.  Most of our streams are on ports that are not typically blocked, including our 128k stream, which we just upgraded to the AAC codec for higher sound quality.   The two streams that are on ports frequently blocked by firewalls have the firewall icon on the stream button.
