If you are seeing this page, THANK YOU.
If you enjoy what we do here at 8bitX and want to support us, we have setup a Paypal site to accept donations.
We wanted to be a little bit different and explain how donations will be used, and allow you to direct your funding if you choose!
It costs about $50 a month to keep the radio stream going at the level we are today. Our staff is 100% volunteer, so the funds go directly to our streaming costs.
The biggest area of need is updating our hardware we use for the live events we cover. In order to cover events in HD, our aging laptops built for audio streaming aren’t cutting it for video encoding to higher resolutions. In addition we’ve gotten by up to this point relying on various people to hook us up with their rigs so we can broadcast. This leads to us scrambling on the day of the event to get things to work together instead of focusing on creating the highest quality broadcast we can produce.
In order to bring these concerts and events to everyone on a consistent basis, we’re just looking for some help if you enjoy what we do.
