Dear Live365 Broadcasters,

You should have already received our notification and link to the press release regarding two issues that have affected Live365 in the last few weeks.

1.    The CRB ruling handed down in December, 2015 did NOT renew or address the expiration of the small webcaster percentage of revenue plans. At this time there is no small webcaster options except for full CRB rates.

2.    Live365’s long time investors have stopped funding us. As a result, we are no longer able to sustain our service.

We are sad that we are closing our doors at the end of this month. There are always possibilities that we can come back in one form or another, but at this point in time, January 31, 2016 is the last day that Live365’s streaming servers and website will be maintained and supported.

This is a surprise to us as it is to all of you. We are proud that Live365 was a pioneer in the streaming music business and have provided a platform to hundreds of thousands of broadcasters to have a voice over the years.

Unfortunately, we have to say good bye.

To ease the transition for you, we have spoken to a number of other streaming providers that can provide services for your broadcasts.

Recommended:
Budget of over $100/month + Direct Licensing w/SoundExchange or Streamlicensing.com agreement

Streamguys – www.streamguys.com – Live365’s recommended provider of streaming services for high end internet radio broadcasts and simulcasts.

Just fill out the form at https://www.streamguys.com/index.php/order.
Let them know you are from Live365.

Need Royalty Coverage?
If you need to have royalty coverage for your broadcast, we recommend licensing directly with SoundExchange. This removes many uncertainties and any middleman.

If licensing directly is something you cannot or will not take on yourself then we would recommend going with one of the following providers.

Streamlicensing.com – They offer licensing coverage with specific reporting and rules. You may be able to use them with your preferred provider. Please see their website for details. They do not provide streaming just licensing.

Radionomy – http://www.radionomy.com/en/static/produce – They
provide “free” streaming with royalty coverage though you will need to hit certain monthly listening hour caps to remain on the service. Broadcasters smaller than 5,000 monthly hours are not recommended.

SecureNet and Streamlicensing.com – http://cir.st/ and http://www.streamlicensing.com – This combination will provide you with some level of royalty coverage. SecureNet will provide you a discounted fee. Please contact Diego Baeza at dbaeza@cir.st or call 954.481.9402 x204.

We are honored to have served your needs over the last decade and a half.

It has been a wild ride both economically, from the pre-dotcom bust days all the way through the Great Recession, as well as technologically, with internet radio going from an unknown, quirky, muddy idea to a ubiquitous technology that hundreds of millions enjoy. Sadly, Live365’s portion of the ride is ending.

Again, streaming services and website access will not be supported beyond 1/31/2016.

We have extremely limited resources with the current skeleton crew. We regret that we will not be able to respond to all of you, so we apologize in advance.

All the best,

The Live365 Team
