mixlr is an audio and musik broadcasting service to stream live on the internet and on social networks, which offers a good quality for little money. The service is available for about just 10 Dollars. But whereas capacity may be added the service is rather suitable to small broadcasters or events by guaranteeing its availability to just 100 listeners. Nevertheless and having a look at the internet radio scene this might be a good solution.
The broadcasting happens by the installation of a software on a computer and to promote a live event on the web tools to integrate a stream at Facebook and Twitter are available. To get further information visit the faq, how to start and the mixlr homepage.
