Digitally Imported (DI or DI Radio) is an Internet radio broadcaster playing various types of electronic music including house, trance, progressive, techno, eurodance, drum and bass, and dubstep, across 92 hand curated channels.[1][2] 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.[3][4][5][6] It has often been listed as one of the top electronic dance music radio stations online[7][8][9][10][11][12] and was awarded Best Global Radio Station at the International Dance Music Awards in March 2010.[13] It also offers streaming radio services of other, non-electronic dance music genres  — such as pop hits, jazz and rock — across nearly 300 channels through its sister networks, RadioTunes,[14] JAZZRADIO,[15] ROCKRADIO,[16] and ClassicalRadio.[17]

Digitally Imported participated in Day of Silence protests against high royalty fees for Internet radio in 2002 and 2007.[18][19] In July 2009, Digitally Imported, radioIO and AccuRadio reached a revenue-sharing deal with royalty collector SoundExchange securing music rights.[20][21][22]

On August 29, 2014, the company rebranded SKY.FM as RadioTunes.[23]
