Internet radio is a medium for audio broadcasting which is a similar concept to traditional radio. The difference is that, as opposed to a standard AM or FM radio signal, Internet radio is transmitted directly to computers or similar devices via the Internet. Internet radio has no technical or geographical barriers. This has become very common and popular in the modern society. The people who are living out of their mother country, could listen to their popular radio channels over the internet.
Over 1.6 million Sri Lankan citizens are working abroad . Out of that the majority of them are working as housemaids in Middle East countries, Cyprus and Israel . Others work in western and European countries. These reasons have made most of them lack their knowledge of the wonderful Sri Lankan heritage and culture. Jayasri Radio has developed a new platform of giving Sri Lankan citizens the opportunity of enjoying their cultural activities and being updated by the latest political, social and religious events.
