Costs and companies that do streaming…

Someone at a radio station wrote me to ask what it costs to add streaming….

Right now, I don’t have the answer to that – I do know most of the companies that are involved in it, but never took the time to write that down in an organized way.  I’m thinking that the costs are pretty much negotiated on a case by case basis.

So that’s a work in progress – when it’s reasonably close to finished, it will become more public.

If you’re involved inselling streaming services,, any insights into what I should list that makes one company different than the others would be welcome.   If you want to be listed, include at least 2 unrelated radio owners that you provide streaming services to….

    The fact that my title mentions costs and the table has no costs, and nobody said anything suggests nobody cares 🙂
