This paper describes an empirical research designed to observe international flows of content in the programming streamed by terrestrial radio stations from Oceania through the Internet. With the objective of investigating which tendency could be perceived regarding such flows in recent years, it discusses its results in comparison to the ones achieved by another research, that was carried out in 2003. The same methodology was used, which is based on the sampling of stations' websites and their submission to an observation protocol for the attribution of profiles regarding to the sphere of their programming – if local, international (global) or “hybrid”, with no prevalence of one over another. The monitoring of 37 radio stations from 11 countries revealed an increasing of international content, although local orientation continues to hold a very comfortable prevalence among Oceanian radios. A growth of the number of countries with stations transmitting on the web could also be observed.
