As mentioned before here are some stream providers I have used:
Now, you can broadcast LIVE on any of these streams, but shoutca.st don’t let you control your presenters.
IE: if your presenter is on live then they have to physically stop the encoder, if they don’t then the next presenter cannot connect to go live.
Radio.co – each of your presenters have a so called “dj” page, where they can broadcast live, but they cant just go on, you as a station owner have to schedule them to go live, so they cant break into your stations stream, as you can with shoutca.st. once you schedule them, they login to their page and a countdown timer will tell them when they are on air. once on air at the end unlike shoutca.st once the counter hits zero the system take them off air, so you have FULL control of your station. Means that your presenters can’t go over their time. EVER!
But the choice is yours.
UK based stream provider, they offer a free account too. if you want to stream music or broadcast live you can.
