TECHCRUNCH reports that WINAMP and SHOUTCAST, AOL's legacy digital music services, have been sold to RADIONOMY.
It was initially thought that the services would end up being purchased by MICROSOFT, but the BRUSSELS, BELGIUM-based RADIONOMY swooped in and snapped them up.
"RADIONOMY has some 6,000 stations in its catalog already, with an emphasis on a do-it-yourself platform that anyone can use to create a channel," notes TECHCRUNCH. "SHOUTCAST’s 50,000-strong catalog of radio stations will be a major boost on that front. WINAMP’s media playing software could be used to help program those radio stations and offer additional services."
