Lighthouses, Pilots, and Bit Rates Riding the Waves of Internet Radio

This paper is about Internet radio broadcasting. That is, the live streaming of a branded program output, to a schedule, in real time. It does not directly deal with podcasting, downloading or time-shifting. The paper examines the current issues confronting the set up and accessibility of Internet services. It examines some of the issues facing Internet radio as it expands from being strictly a niche medium and the potential for it to become a mass-market provider. The paper also discusses aspects of the financial models for Internet radio.
