The Destiny Radio Broadcaster at http://www.pirateradio.com is an excellent software package ($30 approx) depending on how you are looking to promote your internet stream.
You operate as your own server and can adjust the level of potential listeners dependent on your connection bandwidth.
you would then only have licencing fees to consider.
Don’t be put off by the “pirate” label.
It is straightforward enough to set up a broadcast link in a web page to allow people to obtain a direct stream.
From behind a router it isn’t anymore difficult to set up than ShoutCast. One slight restriction is the need for listeners to have the (free) Destiny media player to receive your stream.
worth a look if you are looking to reduce monthly outlay.
I have used it extensively for testing purposes and it is pretty reliable. (see if I am currently running a test at http://soundrediscovery.dnsalias.net:8082/radiodestiny.rdl )
