The way he is going about this seems backwards to me. Wouldn't you normally give you providers the "perks" to supply you with content and then charge a little to the consumers? I do not know of too many people that want to PAY to deliver content.
I guess I do not understand the fuss. I asked this morning over at RR and was told feed providers do not have to pay for providing a feed.
Seems to me a hand full of feed providers are doing so just to get the premium membership to RR. Maybe that is the wrong reason to be a feed provider?
I know we like to pretend that providing a scanner feed is some great technological feat requiring vast amounts of time and effort, not to mention computer and radio knowledge... But really it's a no brainier and if you use the free tools they provide like Scannercast it's pretty much plug, point, click and you're a feed provider.
So I believe all these feed providers that think they are going to hurt RR/Broadcastify by leaving will be replaced by someone that will provide a feed just to provide a feed. That's how I got started even before I knew about RR someone locally was hosting their own feed. They moved away and of course shutdown the feed. I decided that I would fill that void myself.--
