DI.FM (formerly known as Digitally Imported) is an Internet radio broadcaster consisting of over 90 channels dedicated to electronic music, such as house, trance, techno, drum and bass, and dubstep. DI.FM broadcasts handpicked selections consisting of classic, new and up-and-coming hits, as well as weekly and monthly mixed shows from professional DJs. It was founded in December 1999 as a hobby project by Ari Shohat in his Binghamton University dorm room and was one of the first Internet radio stations. It has often been listed as one of the top internet radio stations.
During the 2000s, DI.FM participated in a number of protests against high royalty fees for Internet radio. In July 2009, Digitally Imported, radioIO and AccuRadio reached a revenue-sharing deal with royalty collector SoundExchange securing music rights. It also licenses out its own proprietary streaming platform to power other internet radio sites such as RadioTunes (formerly sky.fm), JazzRadio, RockRadio, ClassicalRadio and ZenRadio.
