United States customers are permitted to insert third-party paid advertising in their station’s programming. 


If you are a customer from the United Kingdom or Canada and are not directly licensed with your country's appropriate organizations, broadcasting non-copyrighted content, own the copyright or have the copyright holders' permissions, then running advertisements outside of Live365's inserted ads is currently prohibited. U.K. and Canadian Live365 broadcasters cannot have any ad services other than those provided by Live365, but can run sponsorship messages on their stations. This is the case even if you opt-out of the ad program. Our team is looking at options to allow for U.K. and Canadian broadcasters to run ads and hope to have this cleared in 2021. You can read more about that here:


If you are licensing your station(s) directly with the proper organizations, we do have options for custom stream hosting for users bringing their own licensing. These packages are generally less expensive because Live365 does not need to pay for your licensing. If you are interested in one of these packages please contact sales@live365.com.
