Hello experts,

I'm totally new to this topic and will appreciate it if you let me now how I can:

1- Start a radio station on the web.
2- What type of services do I need?
3- What type of tools will come handy?
4- What are the fees and kind of budget I need to plan for?

Thank,
Akohan

The link below will cover all your points without really having to do anything
As for cost well depends on the number of listeners, more listeners = more bandwidth = more cost

Doing it yourself will require quite a bit of networking/server/programming knowledge
Even using Shoutcast is not a click and go solution

Does this service cover US only or other countries as well?
next question, if its IP gets blocked by a country, can I by pass it?

Thanks.

I listen to a lot of iTunes radio and most of that is from live365. They have systems to get you running as well. http://www.live365.com/broadcast/
