REC Networks is announcing today that it will be removing certain pre-recorded programs from Hardcore XTRA that are not directly distributed by the W0KIE Satellite Radio Network.
This includes Hardcore XTRA's presentations of:
- This Week In Amateur Radio International
- World of Radio
- This Week In Tech
- Off The Hook
Programming currently fed by W0KIE (including our timeshifted reruns) will continue to be presented.
REC is also giving notice that at the end of November, our current agreement with Live365 for Hardcore XTRA is expiring and at this time, we have no plans to renew it. Many of the reasons stem around the increased broadcast costs and lower revenue recovery as a result of the new copyright laws.
