Bringing dance music around the
globe since December 2006!
Letter from Live365:
January 15th, 2016
Dear Live365 Broadcasters,
You should have already received our notification and link to
the press release regarding two issues that have affected
Live365 in the last few weeks.
1. The CRB ruling handed down in December, 2015 did NOT renew or
address the expiration of the small webcaster percentage of
revenue plans. At this time there is no small webcaster options
except for full CRB rates.
2. Live365's long time investors have stopped funding us. As a
result, we are no longer able to sustain our service.
We are sad that we are closing our doors at the end of this
month. There are always possibilities that we can come back in
one form or another, but at this point in time, January 31, 2016
is the last day that Live365's streaming servers and website
will be maintained and supported.
This is a surprise to us as it is to all of you. We are proud
that Live365 was a pioneer in the streaming music business and
have provided a platform to hundreds of thousands of
broadcasters to have a voice over the years.
Unfortunately, we have to say good bye.
We are honored to have served your needs over the last decade
and a half.
It has been a wild ride both economically, from the pre-dotcom
bust days all the way through the Great Recession, as well as
technologically, with internet radio going from an unknown,
quirky, muddy idea to a ubiquitous technology that hundreds of
millions enjoy. Sadly, Live365's portion of the ride is ending.
Again, streaming services and website access will not be
supported beyond 1/31/2016.
We have extremely limited resources with the current skeleton
crew. We regret that we will not be able to respond to all of
you, so we apologize in advance.
All the best,
The Live365 Team
