Hearing different ads on your Smart Speakers?


Are you wondering about some of the ads you’ve been hearing while listening to CKUA through an audio streaming service? Some streaming services offer “secondary delivery” of CKUA’s original broadcast.

If you use a subscription service such as TuneIn or iHeartRadio, you will hear additional ads inserted by the streaming provider, and these ads are not affiliated with CKUA or our sponsors. The service you use may be inserting ad spots based on a geographic algorithm for Alberta.

If you prefer not to hear these ads, you could instead listen to our digital stream directly from, or on the CKUA app. You can also access our OnDemand platform. If you have a new generation of smart speakers, you can connect them to your device via Bluetooth.

CKUA is committed to remaining politically neutral, and being Alberta’s voice for music, arts, and culture for everyone who wants to listen. If you have any questions, please send them to
