YBR Milestone 2 Achieved!

Eve Radio News

Exactly 1 month after launching our Premium Supporter service we have ploughed through not just one, but two important Milestones on our journey to becoming fully self sufficient and eliminating the need to listener donations forever.

A huge, massive well done to those of you who have taken the plunge and supported us in this way and made it possible to reduce donations not once, but twice in the space of 30 days. As a result of this, for donation collections for the month of September (which we begin taking for in August) will be at a 2006 low of £500.

We are now at a pivotal point in Eve Radio's history.

The next Milestone target is to upgrade our infrastructure and broadcast capabilities to a level we have only been able to dream about in years gone past. It is now within reach and is without doubt, the single most important upgrade/enhancement to Eve Radio since it's creation 8 years ago. We now stand on the brink of being able to upgrade to a massive 1GBPS stream and bring you the wonders of High Definition video streaming of live in game events (like the Lemmings Leap, Funkybacons SiSi Fleet Fights and the awesome DJ Lighshows) for our Premium Supporters and a free lower quality SD stream for everybody else. All this will run alongside our existing radio service to compliment, not replace it.

And that's just the start. The additional bandwidth means when big game changing events like Monoclegate occur we can support upwards of 20 thousand concurrent listeners without having to strain our hardware to breaking point. It also means we can host an on demand video library of our video shows (A Video rewind if you will) and any number of other great things we have yet to think up.

It is, without doubt, the most important next step in our evolution and one we must take quickly in order to maintain growth momentum and bring in new people to our community. Only you, the existing Premium Supporters and those yet to take the plunge can enable this to happen, so we ask you once more to continue supporting Eve Radio through Premium Supporter subscriptions and spreading the word to people the universe over that Eve Radio is for life, not just for Christmas.

Thank you again and well done!
