Broadcasting is very cheap.  It's you that needs to be up and ready.

You area looking at about $1.00 per stream @ 80ks or more.

Meaning that if you have 30 users connected, you are looking at about
30$/month.

You broadcast from your home DSL or cable to the server/bounce off
the server and broadcast to 30 people.

You would not be able to do that from your house so you need a bouncer.

Shop around... check out www.webhostingtalk.com

I am paying $150/month for dedicated server and the downside is the
bandwidth....  IT'S ALL ABOUT bandwidth, bandwidth and one more time!
the BANDWIDTH!

You can be running a small Pentium 400mhz with 500mb ram slim 1u 
server but if you got the bandwidth you are set.  

One piece of advice.... DO YOUR RESEARCH... dont' just jump in.
