Bayside, CA (July 6, 2016)—Podcasting platform Blubrry has partnered with StreamGuys to enable podcasters to expand its audience and reach through internet radio streaming.
Leveraging tools from StreamGuys’ software-as-a-service (SaaS) toolset, the new Podcast2Radio option lets Blubrry customers convert podcasts into linear internet radio streams delivered to new audiences through StreamGuys’ cloud-based content delivery network. This increased distribution includes rich analytics and statistics.
The new Podcast2Radio service provides a new medium for distribution of podcasters’ already-produced content, expanding their reach to internet radio listeners across a broader range of consumer devices and platforms. StreamGuys’ alliances with internet radio aggregation directories such as TuneIn and SHOUTcast further the field of prospective listeners, and increase the opportunities for podcasters’ content to be found.
Once users sign up for the Podcast2Radio service through the Blubrry portal, it will automatically turn their latest podcasts into a looping, continuous, linear stream through a specialized configuration of StreamGuys’ Remote Encoder Lite high-quality, multi-format encoding software. As new podcasts are added to customers’ RSS feeds, Podcast2Radio automatically adds them to the internet radio stream in place of older content, all without playlist editing or other manual user intervention.
The new Podcast2Radio capabilities will be available to Blubrry users beginning this summer.
