How did the development of on-line radio happen?
Popular radio and TV stations laid out the video and audio files to your pages. This happened before the end of the 90s, and some stations continue this practice today. Of course, such archives can not claim to be a full-fledged Internet radio.

Prospects of development of Internet radio.
Does it have an on-line radio to promote business? Is it profitable to develop their own Internet radio? Try to understand. Firstly, on-line radio still does not need licensing, there is no need for legal registration. Own Internet radio can organize every Internet user, no matter what his nationality and where he lives.

Yes, still need a microphone - this is the case, if you want to perform a DJ on your own Internet radio. Finally, the question of advertising. Conventional ad units are used ethereal radio, to on-line radio is unlikely to fit: the modern listener as "overfed" advertising, it is unlikely to cause any feelings other than anger. This problem can be solved if we take into account the fact that the main instrument of acceptance of Internet radio is the computer. It is in computer technology, and should seek new opportunities for advertisers. It is not excluded that will soon be distributed system where Internet stations will award bonuses to attract users and for listening to their broadcast.
