Satellite Broadcasting Network is the Internet and soon-to-be satellite radio service for Europe and then Asia. SBN is comparable to XM or Sirius satellite radios in America; however, satellite radio service has never existed outside of America until now.
SBN has the monopoly of Europe, and will begin Asian service next. SBN just inked a deal and will now be distributed in Bulgaria, Greece, and Turkey. Europe is at least 10 years behind America, and they have not even had their own Internet radio until now. SBN will have all of their programming translated into the 40 European languages that exist in the 25 European countries thus eliminating the language barrier that is present for any European that travels. http://www.satbn.com
Undiscovered Artists! premiered worldwide at South by Southwest (SXSW) in March 2006. It is solely designed for the promotion and exposure of unsigned and independent artists. Undiscovered Artists! is the only promotional company of its kind that does not require the artist to waive their right to royalty fees.
