HearHere Radio and Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) have partnered to bring Rivet News Radio to luxury car owners worldwide at the Paris Motor Show 2014. By preloading Rivet’s Android and iPhone apps on their mobile devices, Jaguar Land Rover drivers can now seamlessly hear audio stories created exclusively from Rivet newsroom, the Associated Press and other outlets.
The Jaguar Land Rover deal brings Rivet its first global distribution partnership, supported by Tier-1 system engineer Robert Bosch. Rivet News Radio has been selected to be one of the first preferred services for JLR’s InControl Apps audio system. Rivet will deliver business, tech and current events news to all Jaguar F-type and XE sedans this October and to all JLR models in 2015.
Recently featured by Apple as a Best New App for Bite-Sized News, Rivet News Radio is currently available in the App Store for iOS devices and the Google Play Store for Android. Jaguar Land Rover drivers can sync the in-car app once they’ve downloaded the app to their device.
Prior to this announcement, HearHere’s CEO John MacLeod, wrote explicitely about the future of in-car audio.
