Seen a thread on the Shoutcast forums regarding the services Radionomy provide, It looks like the free Shoutcast RMO service is being phased out in favour of a new “Shoutcast for Business” service.
Important to note that users on the platform will lose their free radio station(s) if they don’t upgrade to the new paid service.
It was only a matter of time before Radionomy started charging for the service, I imagine they weren’t making a lot from the free Shoutcast RMO service.
Which wasn’t technically free as users had to run ads for 2 minutes twice an hour. Main reason I didn’t want to use them I don’t like adverts on Internet radio you get enough of them on mainstream FM stations.
Its still early days & this is pretty fresh news. I will update this post with more details when I have them.
