Always wanted to be a DJ or radio host? No more excuses–here’s how to start your own radio station online without breaking the bank.
Have you ever wondered how internet radio stations work and/or wanted to create your own, but thought it would be too complicated and costly?. As long as you have a PC with a broadband connection, you have what it takes to showcase your musical taste to anyone around the world. This step-by-step will guide you how. It is actually very easy, and you can set up your own radio station and begin broadcasting songs in about 15 minutes.
The process is broken down in 3 basic stages of internet broadcasting:
- You – The supplier of the content
- Us – RadioEnviron, the streaming platform that will broadcast your content
- Audience – The listeners, anyone with an internet connection, can now connect to your radio station worldwide.
First of all, let me give you a quick rundown on how it works. You have your music player (you get a Media Player with RadioEnviron) and radio automation software (you get ZaraRadio as part of a RadioEnviron package). You will need a fast internet connection so you can broadcast without buffer underruns occurring. Broadcasting software like Butt, SamCast encode and sends music to a streaming service like RadioEmviron where the music is sent to the listener.
