Play.it was a podcast network service owned by Entercom.

History

Previously, it was an internet radio service originally created by CBS Radio. It was different in that it allowed for direct customization of stations, including the ability to weight the stations to only play the seeds.

All limits associated with other CBS Radio services applied to play.it stations.

On February 4, 2010, all CBS radio stations banned all non U.S. listeners from streaming online content. CBS Radio redirected to a paid service for non U.S. listeners. In May that same year, Play.it announced their new player with a new full browser layout.

Play.it had many formatting errors before eventually shutting down and redirecting its URL to the main CBS Radio website in 2012.

The Play.it website was relaunched on January 7, 2015, this time as an on-demand podcasting service. It allows users to stream content from CBS's digital libraries, including 60 Minutes, CBS Sports Radio, and CBS News.[2] On November 17, 2017, Play.it became an Entercom property along with the rest of the assets of CBS Radio as part of the merger between CBS Radio and Entercom.[3]

Following Entercom's acquisition, Play.it and its podcast catalog merged into Radio.com's streaming service.[4]
