One of the most frequent questions we get is about finding the right package for new broadcasters or stations just starting out. If you are new to broadcasting on the Internet, these guidelines should help you pick the best tier for getting started.
The main difference between the various broadcasting packages is the amount of disk space for track uploads, and the number of Total Listening Hours (TLH) that each package offers.
How many songs would you like to keep in your library? There's a guide to how many song your library can hold in the various Broadcast packages here.
Your TLH is the total number of hours that your station can stream every month. The Broadcast 1 package comes with 1500 TLH. That means that you can have approximately 50 people who tune in to your station for one full hour each day. The Broadcast 2 package comes with 3500 TLH, and the Broadcast 3 package comes with 7000 TLH.
If you are unsure about how many TLH you will need, we suggest that you start with the smallest broadcast package. If you go over your TLH, you will be automatically bumped up to the next package at a pro-rated fee. This ensures that your listeners won't get cut off mid-stream!
