How Do I Get iHeartRadio For Free?

iHeartRadio is an American radio and music streaming service characterized by its own variety of radio stations and great music offerings. The free offer is usually not available in many countries, but it can still be used with a trick. We explain how it works via smartphone, Amazon Echo and in the browser.

At least through the annual iHeartRadio Music Awards, IHeartRadio should also be known to many music lovers. In addition to this award ceremony, iHeartRadio supports unique radio stations in genres from Hawaii to Virginia. In addition to local radio, these stations are broadcast on web radio. There are also artist radio stations with great music recommendations.

The basic version of iHeartRadio is free. Short commercials are played here from time to time before the start of the broadcast. In addition, only a limited number of songs can be skipped on the artist’s radio. If you wish, you can get rid of these barriers with a monthly subscription for $5.99 – but this is by no means necessary. Whether or not you subscribe, you need to bypass the country lock once to sign up for free.

Registration through “” only works with an IP address in the US or Canada. You can get this either by using a free VPN service. If you are now accessing “” with an active VPN or DNS connection, you can select your favorite genres from the preset list first. Having done this, first click “Get Stations” and then in the next window “My Stations” at the top of the screen.

A registration mask will open where you enter your name, date of birth and email address. You can fill in the Zip Code field with a US ZIP code of your choice – for example, your location, whose stations you would like to find in the Local section. If you do not want to receive promotional emails, uncheck the appropriate box and click “Register”. In addition, you can register with your Facebook or Google account by clicking on the appropriate field.

Anyone logging into the app no ‚Äč‚Äčlonger needs an active VPN connection to access – country blocking does not apply here. Streaming via iPhone, iPad or Android works the same way around the world. Web browser-only access is still only possible with an active VPN connection.

If you’re using an Amazon Echo with US regional settings, you can also sign in here with your newly created iHeart account via the Alexa app. Streaming also works without being tied to a country.

So, the streaming app is free to use. It’s easy to do. The main thing is to correctly follow all the steps that are listed above.
