CDN streaming (Initially from AzuraCast)
Scale with your audience

ShwóŋCast runs its own proprietary distributed architecture streaming platform. In layman's terms, we can provide a very technologically advanced service at an affordable price. All ShwóŋCast plans support unlimited listeners so your radio station will grow seamlessly with your audience.

Not some random Icecast / Shoutcast server

ShwóŋCast's unique cloud-based streaming platform gives you the scalability and reliability of a much larger infrastructure, at a price that's comparable to standard streaming solutions. Your stream isn't served by a standard Icecast/Shoutcast server with limited resources, but distributed through ShwóŋCast's entire server infrastructure.
