By opting in to the Advertising Revenue Share Program, you, as a Broadcaster, give Live365 exclusive control over the ads that are played on your station. In return, Live365 will share 50% of its Net Advertising Receipts with you, the Broadcasters. Net Advertising Receipts are the amounts actually received by Live365 for the corresponding Broadcaster’s delivery of advertising impressions during the specified time period. Opting into the Advertising Revenue Share Program can help to further reduce your monthly streaming costs.
Broadcaster’s Revenue Share is calculated each calendar month according to the following formula:
- 50% of Net US Audio Advertising Receipts multiplied by the Broadcaster’s percentage of corresponding paid US impressions delivered for the period.
- 50% of Net Non-US Audio Advertising Receipts times Broadcaster’s percentage of corresponding paid Non-US impressions delivered for the period.
For Example: If in a particular month, Live365 received $25,000 for delivery of 8.5 million US audio impressions in that month, a Broadcaster whose stations delivered one million of those impressions would be paid $1,471 for these US impressions which represents 50% of the corresponding US ad revenue delivered by this station. A similar calculation will be done on non-US revenue and impressions.
Note that in order to receive your share of the Advertising Revenue, you must be up-to-date on your current billing cycle, with no outstanding payments, and you must strictly adhere to the Advertising Revenue Share Program guidelines of at least 4 minutes per hour of ads, with a maximum of 2 minutes duration per ad break. By agreeing to the Advertising Revenue Share Program, you agree to not insert any paid advertising from sources other than Live365.
