Live365 Reaches Out to Webcasters Left Stranded by SoundExchange's Disabling of SWCast
FOSTER CITY, CA (April 25, 2011) - For many years, Internet radio has provided veteran and novice webcasters alike a powerful means to get their voices heard. SoundExchange's disabling of internet radio network, SWCast, earlier this month has forced many webcasters offline. In an effort to ensure that SWCast members can continue streaming, Live365 has announced a special broadcasting package to all SWCast webcasters whose stations may be impacted.
Since 1999, Live365 has provided the Internet broadcasting community a platform to legally stream their favorite content online. "Live365 continues to be committed to providing the most cost effective and legal way to webcast," said Jason Stoddard, Live365's Director of Broadcasting Sales. "While the disabling of SWCast is an unfortunate event for many webcasters, our ongoing dedication to complying with all royalty regulations means they still have a place to go," added Stoddard.
Live365 offers a number of affordable and legal streaming packages for all types of broadcasters and is compliant with the required music royalty entities, including SoundExchange, BMI, ASCAP, and SESAC.
