Im going to start a little Project in England.

Because atm i live in Germany and im Moving in Summer and i want to start the Radioshow earlier.
I Hope you can help me.
Here some Details:

its more a musicstream than a radio because only i am the moderator but team is growing.

well, that depends upon a lot.
I take it you are looking asking about prices for good reliable stream hosts? You can take a look at a list at www.radiotoolbox.com.

Wrong place to ask...
I would suggest starting small, getting a dedicated IP, and going with a company like...
http://webradioworld.com for the UK.
and working it out with all the details of streaming before you launch a FULL ON hardcore project. This is a recipe for disaster.
Not that I ever take my own advice, but this one I would take my word on. You don't want to DIY broadcast with no experience unless you REALLY know some people.

Do note to be fully licensed in the UK you need mcprs and ppl licensing which is not offered by wwr as far as im aware.
you would need to contact them direct for more information.

absolutely right. Snipped this off their boards.
Iâ€™ve heard that I may also need an MCPS/PRS licence. What is MCPS/PRS and why would I need a separate licence from them?
MCPS/PRS license and administer the rights of songs (i.e. the music and lyrics) on behalf of music publishers and composers. If you are broadcasting a song that is in copyright, you will need an MCPS/PRS licence. The monies collected are accounted back to the publishers and writers of the song. This licence is required in addition to a PPL licence.
The difference between the two licences is more clearly illustrated when the writer is a different person from the artist. For example, if you were to broadcast the Jimi Hendrix recording of the Bob Dylan song All Along the Watchtower, then the respective Webcasting licences would relate to the following rights:
PPL: This licence would be on behalf of the record company that controls the rights to the Jimi Hendrix recording of the song.
MCPS/PRS: This licence would be on behalf of ONLY the UK publisher that controls the rights to the Bob Dylan song.
Even if the writer and artist are one and the same, the rights contained within the song itself and the recording of the song remain separate, so you will still require each type of licence.
For more information on the MCPS/PRS Webcasting licence, please contact their Online Licensing Team on 020 7306 4991 or e-mail: email@example.com
Web Radio World has agreed terms with MCPS/PRS and are awaiting to sign a contract allowing us to provide this service.

That was a year ago that was posted so it may not be correct at present.
These agencies do not make it easy to have their licenses sold from what i make of it.
