    That's because you don't understand how the licensing works.

    You pay less if anything doing licensing directly, and you won't get sued someday when the record labels wake up to how Live365 does a...

    Because I am a company of one, I would need to start off with an automated radio station. However, I want to run MY ads and also intertwine MY content. But everything would need to be automated,...

    Nope. I am a nomad, and go from state to state and project to project and live in hotels.

    Well, a terrestrial station is not an option right now.

  8. Questions about "Radio Automation Software"

    Since I am not making much progress on my Internet radio station business questions, maybe I can at least increase my knowledge on the technical side?! :)

    First off, is there an acronym for "Radio...

    I just checked with a stream provider, and they said that if I do the licensing myself, they can offer up to 50,000 TLH for like $80/month, which is "cheap" in my book.

    So nobody in this forum has been able to make a profit from a pure Internet radio station?

    That is, everyone here is just a "hobbyist"?

    I just find it sad that apparently everyone on this forum has decided that an Internet radio station is only for hobbyists.

    Maybe it is impossible to succeed - I don't know.

    Just would have...

    Then why bother creating your own Internet radio station? (Especially if YOU are a Spotify fan?!)

    And what is the purpose of this forum really?

    A "playlist" isn't "radio" nor "Internet radio".

    Apparently nobody cares how Apple and Spotify and even iHeart Radio are destroying a key part of human culture.

    I am interested in buidling my own Internet radio station so that I can use it as an advertising and promotions "platform" for my startup business.

    I don't deny your experiences or struggles, but I find what you all are saying so depressing.
