Note: Direct metadata transmission to TuneIn is not currently supported. Due to some technical difficulties, we had to delay the TuneIn AIR API release for the Live365 Dashboard. This will allow displaying metadata in real time on your TuneIn station profile. We expect this feature to be finalized and available by the end of the quarter 2 of 2023. For the avoidance of doubt, all listening sessions resulting from TuneIn via Live365 servers are still tracked for music royalty payments and are included in your overall listening.
- If we add our station to Tune In On Air, will you still cover the licensing?
Yes, Live365 will continue taking care of your station's music license and royalty reporting, including the listeners from the TuneIn platform.
- If someone hears an ad on one of the platforms that TuneIn support, do those ad impressions count toward my revenue sharing?
Yes, any content that is aired through your Live365 station is also heard on TuneIn. The ad impressions are counted as usual.
