Thank you for considering placing the J1 Radio streams on your mobile apps or websites.  Every listener counts at J1, therefore we do encourage our stations having as much presence as possible.  

At this time, J1 is in the process of transitioning streaming providers.  This means that the raw URLs for the streams are in the process of changing.  Please keep a watch on this page as we will update it when we have the information on the new URLs.  

If your application can handle a redirect on a HTTP 302 response code, we strongly encourage that you add the following URLs as they will remain permanent despite any changes we make to our service providers in the future:

Channel/Slogan 128K 44 kHz MP3 64K AAC
J1 HITS (Japan's hottest hits)
J1 XTRA (Japan's greatest hits of all time)
J1 GOLD (The legends of Japanese music)
a-chan (The anime channel from J1)

If your application does not support HTTP 302 redirects, you will need to use the following direct URLs:

NOTE: J1 is in the middle of a transition to a new service provider.  Once we have transitioned J1 XTRA and J1 GOLD to the new service provider, we will announce URLs in this space.  Again, if your app supports 302 redirects, please use the URLs above to provide our channels both before and after the change.

Channel 128K 44 kHz MP3 64K AAC
J1 GOLD (not at this time)
A-chan (not at this time)

Please note that if you use these non-redirect URLs, you will need to change them if our service provider changes or our existing service provider needs to make changes.

If you are currently pointing to a URL at, those URLs will be discontinued.  The sonixcast URL for J1 HITS will be discontinued on or sometime after March 2, 2018.  We plan to operate a looped announcement for 30 days after the discontinuance date for each feed.  

Again, thank you for your interest in carrying J1 on your app or website!
