Start by contacting us below and we'll be in touch to schedule an introductory phone call and walk you through the process, our team and how we can help you stream on line effortlessly!
Licensing Your Channel
Our digital StudioCenter and production staff stores, schedules and rotates your custom channel mix with music (optional), announcements, promos and messages. No matter your flavor, we have you covered! Echo contracts are based on two-year terms and implementation can take as little as a just a few weeks. When ready, link your newly customized player to your website, or play in your retail location(s). We do the rest!
Our massive music library is automatically available with the Music Royalty package. If you plan on airing copyrighted music by Christian labels and artists, there are legal reporting and royalty costs associated with public performance of each work. On your own, these costs can be in the thousands and take tens of hours every month reporting each and ever track.
Thankfully, ECHO does all the hard work for you by reporting and recording all your royalties automatically; scheduling your programming, and piping your broadcast to listeners around the world!
Because your ECHO Channel will be 100% automated and internally managed/monitored by our StudioCenter production professionals, there will be many up-front questions we'll need to ask to ensure we're programming, scheduling and creating your channel exactly the way you want to hear it.
We will coordinate your team to discuss opportunities, music, recorded messages, commercials or announcements and other features of your channel. We'll also explain how to send us your media files for future updates via your new Client Dashboard.
Of course, so long as you are an active licensee, we never charge support or troubleshooting fees during normal business hours. Call us in the middle of the night and we might be slightly grumpy. You will always have direct support and response from professional programmers.
Link & Go LIVE!
Once produced and previewed in Beta mode by your team, we'll pick a coordinated "go live" date to launch your new channel. We'll provide a permanent HTML link to your new HTML5 Player (and premium mobile-friendly player, if selected).
You simply publish the live player (pop-up) on you home page and anywhere else you'd like.
We maintain all the back-end details of the player itself and the 24/7 radio stream.
When you're not airing custom content, we can automatically fill your station with your choice of music formats. Watever your flavor: Pop Hits, Contemporary, New Rock & Urban...
