Listeners from across the globe are to have the opportunity to hear local community radio station Isles FM.
This has been made possible by a joint initiative between Isles FM and the Live Hebrides project.
The newly launched project is designed to increase effective use of broadband services in the Outer Hebrides.
This has helped Isles FM to create a platform to allow its radio output to be streamed over the internet.
Lisa MacLean, from the radio project, said in a statement: "The Live Hebrides team are working to develop the already established Hebrides.tv and one idea was to use it as a platform to stream Isles FM globally.
"This is an exciting opportunity for people with Hebridean connections to listen to a local station and is an example of how the use of broadband can improve business and quality of life."
Isles FM station manager Alasdair Ferguson said: "It's been great working with the Live Hebrides team.
"There is so much confusion about internet services and how to best use them. The team were able to provide fast and practical advice on how best Isles FM could provide a web streaming service.
"The tests we have run over the last few weeks have left me amazed at the quality of sound we are able to broadcast. This is a big step forward for us and our thanks go out to the team at Live Hebrides."
Hebrides.tv provides a website for video upload similar to the YouTube website but is completely dedicated towards video from the Western Isles.
The site hopes to act as a portal for many island initiatives and businesses.
