TuneIn Now Playing info

I was just wondering why some stations do not show now playing information but you open the same station in TuneIn and it does.

Eg, station that shows Now Playing info is KIIS 101.1, this shows on TuneIn app and and Sonos app.

But Buddha Radio only shows on the Tunein App.

The reason I ask is I often want to know what song is playing but Sonos doesn't provide the track details.

If anyone has ideas that would be great

Sonos relies only on information encoded into the audio stream, as far as song data goes. TuneIn's website and app likely update the song info based on other methods, including real-time XML data from the station/provider. Since TuneIn acts as an aggregator of radio streams, and doesn't provide the streams themselves, this is why there is inconsistency between different streams.
