Digitally Imported (DI) is an Internet radio broadcaster playing various types of electronic music including house, trance, progressive, techno, eurodance, drum and bass, and dubstep, across 91 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]
