Tunein fee information is below:
“TuneIn offers two different apps: TuneIn Radio and TuneIn Radio Pro.

TuneIn Radio Pro is available for a one-time fee. It is just like our free app but additionally is banner ad and pre-roll ad-free and allows you to record.
TuneIn Premium is a paid subscription service that we offer for both apps.

Tunein Radio is a free App. Enjoy
I had posted a similar question. I tried a bit of radio streaming thru my laptop, but was disappointed with the sound. (And didn't want my laptop tied up with streaming). I found a few internet tuners on Amazon, but the sound quality was kind of an unknown.
When I asked on Audiogon, I got suggestions to get a streamer instead, as they can also access internet radio. Bought a refurbished Node 2 music streamer. Sounds great. Much better than the laptop. Can output analog or digital. The tuning is done by installing an app on your phone or tablet. And it still has the potential to access the high resolution subscription services, if I want to explore that later.
An easy +1 for the Bluesound Node 2i. Used is in your price range, plus it has it's own decent DAC built in. It can stream all the popular subscriptions if you want later (Tidal, Qobuz, Spotify, Deezer etc) and it hooks up either by direct cable or wifi to your router. Free Bluesound app gets you free internet radio and the fidelity is outstanding.
We all started knowing nothing and I think we sometimes forget that. Here's the Bluesound Node2i hookup for beginners.
Plug the Node analog outs into your stereo.
If you are using wifi, you're done.
If you are wiring direct to your router instead of wifi, hook that cable up. You're done.
Plug the Node in.
Download the BluesSound app to your phone, tablet or computer. Give it the password to your router. It will automatically connect with the Node.
Use the app to select radio. Everything is done through the app. Sit back and enjoy.
