Abacast Fixed-Price Streaming Enables Radio Broadcasters to Focus on Profitability

The new pricing model removes day to day streaming cost concerns; streaming costs no longer scale unpredictably with audience growth.

Camas, WA(17 Sep 2010)


Abacast, Inc., a provider of online radio streaming solutions, announced today the launch of fixed-price streaming for both terrestrial and Internet-only radio stations.

Generally, industry pricing plans allow streaming costs to grow unpredictably with audience growth, inhibiting profitability. Abacast Fixed-Price Streaming is a tiered fixed pricing model that allows broadcasters to grow their audience without the risk of overage charges. Fixed Price Streaming provides stable and predictable streaming costs, even while the broadcaster's audience is growing. 

"With Abacast Fixed Price Streaming, we have built-in headroom for audience growth," said Rick Peters, COO of Bluewater Broadcasting. "We can continue to grow our traffic, now knowing that it will lead to higher profitability for Bluewater Broadcasting." 

"With the launch of our Radio Streaming Platform, we're introducing a fixed pricing model with built-in audience growth, enabling broadcasters to focus on what they do best- producing great content and serving their advertiser clients- without having to worry day-to-day about audience growth costs," says  Jim Kott, Co-President of Abacast.
