Many Italian magazines about music now maintain a presence on the Internet with on-line versions of their Italian music.

Broadcast mediaEdit

Nationwide, the state-run broadcasting network, RAI (Radio audizioni italiane), provides three TV channels and three AM or FM radio channels. There are also three private TV networks, run by the Mediaset company. All provide live or recorded music many hours per week. Many large cities in Italy have local TV stations, as well, which may provide live folk or dialect music often of interest only to the immediate area. Additionally, there are many hundreds of private FM radio stations broadcasting in Italy, with much of the programming devoted to music.
