Shoutcast Injecting Pre Roll Adverts

Woken up the news that Shoutcast/Radionomy were injecting pre roll adverts into peoples streams.

**Update: DJEgg posted this on the forums**

“We were testing the insertion of pre-rolls for one particular CDN (hosting provider) who’d requested it.
Unfortunately, in the process, pre-rolls for all registered DNAS stations was activated by mistake. We’ve now disabled it.
Thanks everyone for letting us know. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Monetization for DNAS is indeed opt-in, not opt-out”

 
This was happening to online radio station owners who are using the latest build of the Shoutcast DNAS.

You have a Choice?

When it comes to radio automation software you have a choice…

“Do you pay $$$ for a program or do you download a program for free?”

 
Personally we’d rather have something for FREE. Leaves us with more money to spend on other stuff.
