    It's my understanding that this isn't an option with Verizon.

    Yeah, I asked about this in another thread. It turns out that there is no FM tuner on the M8.

    Really?! I was told that reviews mentioned it wasn't there and that the HTC website spec sheet had no mention of it!

    Colour me surprised!! Screenshots? It seems a little odd for it to be on some carriers and not on others. Though of course it could be just that FM receivers aren't really big shot features and they just fall by the wayside in specs lists these days.

    It's the same as it's been - an app but you need the headphones, which serve as the antenna.

    If it has the fm tuner, then you wouldn't be using data, the headphones would be the antenna.

    I know that, I'm saying that Verizon wants you to use data to listen to music so they took out the fm radio app.

    The Sprint version uses the NextRadio app (NextRadio). The first HTC One used the preloaded HTC FM Tuner as shown in the picture a few posts above, I used it regularly during my morning commute...I love this NextRadio app tho! Still uses the headphones as an antenna, but this app tells you the song, past songs played, groups stations by genre, and tells you all radio stations that are available depending on your current location.

    Do you have an apk for the app by any chance? I'd like to side load it on my Verizon model and see if anything comes of it.

    I am using the HTC One M8 by Verizon. FM Radio was not installed.
    On another site I discovered that other carriers use the NextRadio app. At first, the NextRadio app wouldn't Install because it is not allowed on my Verizon phone.
    So, I sneakily found the APK on internet.
    From the website I downloaded the file to my Verizon HTC M8. Using a file manager, I located the file on phone, tapped it, and it installed with no problem
    I am listening to the FM radio as I type this.
    Attached copy of the file.
