Tell us how and why your company got started?
Radio.co was born out of the need for a simple to use and modern web platform for broadcasters. No more messing around with dated desktop software thats always crashing. We wanted to build an automation system for radio that is future proof and can be controlled from the web. We’ve used the same kind of technologies that sites like Facebook and Google use to deliver fluid and beautiful applications via the web and have created a stunning, clean interface for our clients to manage their stations.
Why is your company passionate about streaming radio services?
Radio.co was founded by the same team behind Wavestreaming – which has been in this industry for a long time. We know the demands of modern internet broadcasters and we’ve always been on the ball. The same team that built Radio.co has been responsible for tens of thousands of stations over the years and we’ve always put our customers first.
What do you think makes your company different from the competition?
Radio.co is unique in that it doesn’t rely on ‘third party’ software like SHOUTcast or Icecast or any control panels that always seem to be buggy. After working with such tools before, we decided that the industry could do with a pretty drastic overhaul of the whole lot. So we hired a team of excellent web developers and invested heavily into building what we consider the easiest to use, most solid streaming platform out there – which you can’t really compare.
Radio.co is fortunate to have a real team of dedicated experts based our of our offices in Manchester city centre. Our support team assist you to make running your station easy. Radio.co’s active R&D team are always working on cutting edge radio technology and features. Whenever we roll out updates (which happen every month) as you’re on our platform, you’ll always have access to the latest features and know that your station is always going to be up to date. No software to download and install, no complicated servers to configure and run – we take care of all of that, so you can sleep at night safe in the knowledge that your station is live and broadcasting from the cloud.
