If you want to listen to the radio from our website simply follow these steps.
1. Click here to launch the player
2. If it does not launch properly you may need to change your browser settings to 'always allow pop-ups from this site'.
Internet Browser - In the top left corner of this page (and every page) you'll see a LISTEN NOW button. Click on it, to launch a player in a new window.
Look for it on or near the stereo. You simply need a 3.5MM (male-to-male) cable to connect your phones headphone socket to the stereo. Change your stereo to the AUX setting and you’re away.
Can’t see an AUX socket? Google your car make and model as some have a ‘secret’ audio jack located behind the stereo. But using it may involve removing the stereo and other handy work, so you might like to keep reading.
If your car stereo supports a Bluetooth connection, you can simply enable Bluetooth on your phone under ‘Settings’. Once you’ve made it ‘discoverable’ or ‘visible’ set your car stereo to find the device, then you should be prompted to enter a PIN. Once connected, you can enjoy Vision (and probably make phone calls) wirelessly. Your phone should automatically ‘pair’ every time you start your car so you should only ever have to do this once.
Cassette Tape Deck Adapter
If your car is old enough to have a cassette player, you can use a Cassette Tape Adapter to play audio through your stereo. Just slide the adapter into the cassette deck and connect it to the audio jack on your phone.
This little piece of kit plugs into your phone (some include a charger) and will broadcast what your phone is playing on a very low powered FM radio frequency. You simply need to tune your car radio to the same frequency. Prices can range from $15 to $100 but you can get mixed results with the cheaper models, so it might be worth getting a recommendation from a friend or spending a bit extra.
Now, all that's left is for you to enjoy Vision Christian Radio or Vision180 crispy clean through your car speakers.
PLEASE NOTE: All these methods use ‘data’ from your phone plan. Listening to our standard 64K stream will use approx 28MB an hour.
If you receive regular TV via VAST (Viewer Access Satellite Television), then you already receive Vision; simply tune in to channel 614 and you are good to go.
Satellite reception is usually reasonably inexpensive, especially if you already have a dish on your house. The satellite signal is available everywhere in Australia and also parts of nearby countries.
You'll need to get a dish installed - along with a receiver (also known as a decoder or set-top box). Your local TV antenna and satellite service (eg pay TV installer) should be able to help. It may be a very simple exercise if you already have a dish on your roof that is not currently connected.
You'll need to get a High Definition receiver to access OPTUS D3 (Radio Channel 614). There's more information here.
Tunein Radio is a free app available on iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry. Simply download the app from your relevant store. Search for Vision within the app and you’ll be listening to us in no time.
Wifi radios connect to the internet and stream online audio through their speakers.
If you have Apple TV, then you can listen to Vision through your TV. Using the Apple TV application for radio, search for 'Vision Radio Network' or 'Vision Christian Radio'.
If none of the above options are working for you or you would prefer to use a different media player than the ones listed above, here are the stream URLS to copy and paste into your preferred media player. Keep in mind different streams will vary in quality and data usage.
