Radionomy is a company that is owned by Universal Music Group - a very large media company in Europe. They were the ones that purchased the WinAmp and Shoutcast technology many years ago and continue to support those platforms.

When things looked bad for small internet broadcasters a few years back, we went with Radionomy to host three of our Channels: Highlander Radio, Celtic Moon and Celt-Rock-Radio.

As of today, Radionomy has ceased to stream to the U.S. due to copyright laws and the threat of being sued by the U.S. music industry.

So these three streams will no longer work in the U.S. If you try to connect and live in the U.S. you will receive a message that states the station is being blocked.

We will continue to keep our Radionomy streams available to international listeners, so if you are outside the U.S. feel free to continue to listen.

We are still broadcasting our streams on the shoutcast platform which we are now based in Canada and abide by all Canadian regulations. There has been some talk of these streams being blocked to U.S. listeners, but Canadian jurisdiction prevents that. Our physical address is now located in Canada and we will update our contact details soon with that information.

note to listeners, if you use a VPN like Cyber Ghost you can choose an IP in any country you choose and get around those blocks.

You did not hear that from me! LOL.

We are still getting some decent listeners from Europe and Canada. Looks like we will be able to keep our three Radionomy Streams as the service requires a certain # of listening hours per month.

For those receiving the message that the stream is no longer available in there country, just use our website link to tune into those stations from our Canadian Servers.

Radionomy streams are working but they are not playing Celtic Music. More new Age stuff and all three were playing the same song. Went to the "Listen Now" button and no problems. That still plays highlander radio. Problems maybe with the power outages around the country or some sort of switchover.

The Radionomy streams are not working for anyone residing in the U.S. Outside of the U.S. the ad-supported streams are working fine.

So basically they are blocking any listening from the U.S. Here is a press release on the topic. More depressing news for streaming in the U.S.

After several successful years of streaming through the Radionomy platform, today we have decided to end our streaming accounts on Radionomy.

It appears that most listeners from Canada and the U.S. have been blocked from that platform, but it goes a little further than that. Radionomy appears to be redirecting our listeners to other broadcasts and they have crippled our ability to stream our channels through their platform.

There was an option to continue our 3 Radionomy channels by paying them a huge service fee, but in the end we would have ended up with duplicate channels that resemble what we currently offer through our Shoutcast channels.

The Radionomy channels have been closed today and we will remove any links on the website to those channels.

Sad state of affairs for the independent radio webcasters. Unlike the original radio broadcasters from 1906, they did not have to deal with regulations and the constant push for money money money!

Our TorontoCast streams based in Canada will continue at this time.

The powers that be sure seem to be trying to oust the "little guys" these days. Pitiful.
