Getting Started with Internet Radio

Posted by on Comments Off on Getting Started with Internet Radio

Internet radio is the next step after FM and HD radio. Thanks to the Internet, you can reach a global audience. Instead of investing in professional studios and antennas, you can start your radio station from your couch using only your laptop (and a good microphone)!

To get your stream out there, you need stream hosting that provides you with the server power to reach your listeners. That’s what we do.
The Heights Hosting Co. offers you not only a great audio stream but also offers apps for iPhone and Android, a widget to place on your website, and a great AutoDJ.

Do I require a broadcast license?

The Heights Hosting Co. is a US-based company, therefore we do have to enforce online broadcast regulations. This means you need written permission by all rights owners to the music you play or a license from the organization that hands these out. If you play royalty free music you don’t need this.

We suggest to contact your local authorities or ask for suggestions in the community.

We do not force any of our users to purchase these licenses and will not suspend any services if we find that they are not licensed. However, if we receive a complaint from FCC, PRS or a music artist/record label – we will be forced to remove the audio file which has been complained about. This could also lead to termination of the main account. You will be notified of this before anything is deleted from your account.
