Five Reasons to Choose Live365

What makes one of the most iconic brands in internet radio so special? Let’s take a look at what makes Live365 great.

1. Licensing Coverage in the U.S., U.K., & Canada
We know that music licensing is expensive and the associated reporting is difficult. As the owner of a radio station, it’s something that you absolutely need a solution for though. We understand that you’d rather focus on other aspects of running your station, like creating awesome content, so let us help. We already have licensing agreements in place with the major licensing bodies in the U.S., U.K., and Canada, and we’ll take care of your station's reporting as well.

2. Fast & Easy Setup
Get your station on the air with minimal time and effort. Once you provide your station information, you’ll upload your tracks using our drag and drop interface within your station's personalized Live365 dashboard. From there, you can create a playlist to schedule later or go live. You’ll also never have to worry about dead air. We’ve set every station up with our DMCA-compliant AutoDJ to make sure your station is streaming 24/7/365.

3. Built-In Monetization
Live365 can help you monetize your station by placing ads targeted to each individual listener. When you opt in to Live365's Advertising Revenue Share Program, we compete for the highest CPM (cost per thousand impressions) for each impression of every listener on your station. End result? We make you the most amount of money possible to reduce streaming costs. If you decide you’d rather skip the ads, we can make that happen as well!

4. Distribution
Not only is Live365 a tool to create a great station, it’s also a network of thousands of stations that reaches thousands of listeners. We list your station in our directory, which is available on our website, in the Live365 iOS and Android apps, and via Amazon Alexa, and provide you with the tools you need to get listed in other directories so your station is as discoverable as possible.

5. Constant Updates & New Features
We’re taking feedback from broadcasters just like you to help build the best platform out there for internet radio. Have a suggestion or request? Tell us on our feedback portal! We constantly release new features to give you more creative tools to deliver the best content on the internet.
