Radionomy, a free online radio streaming provider, is to close on 1 January 2020, shuttering over 8,000 online radio stations. Radionomy was attractive since it paid music licensing fees via Belgian music collection agency SABAM. The company have offered a free year’s Shoutcast for Business service to those affected, but added “Shoutcast does not manage broadcasting rights. It will, therefore, be up to the producer to go to the various licensing agencies in his country to pay the fees directly.” The company closed their US streams in May. The parent company owns TargetSpot, and promised to bring WinAmp back this year.
