Livestream Announces a $399 per Month Flat Rate Plan
Company says it wants successful live event broadcasters to no longer be punished for streaming to large audiences.
Live event company Livestream unveiled its first flat rate plan today, Livestream Premium. For $399 per month, customers get unlimited bandwidth, unlimited storage, and an embeddable video player. By offering an all-you-can-stream plan with no punishments for overages, Livestream says it wants to disrupt the market and remove the fees broadcasters get when their live events are highly successful.
The Premium plan includes seven-day-a-week phone support for those who need help setting up or streaming an event. Customers can take advantage of Livestream's tools for live video and live blogging, and can embed their live event pages anywhere, including a company Facebook page.
"In our quest to bring every event live online, we are debuting the industry's first unlimited premium streaming plan, making it easy and cost effective for brands and businesses of any size to connect people with their events on Livestream and any website of their choosing with our embedded video player," said Max Haot, Livestream's CEO and co-founder.
StreamingMedia.com broke the news on September 18, 2012, that Livestream would offer a plan with unlimited live streaming in the near future.
Livestream also offers a Free plan that offers ad-free streaming and a one month archive, and a $49 per month Basic plan with unlimited archiving.
When Jan Ozer looked at the Livestream Broadcaster last month, he wasn't able to test its 4G performance. He's fixed that by taking the Broadcaster on vacation.
The company also announced new tiers of service with live stream embedding and an important addition to its iPhone app.
Offering over six hours of live coverage, Livestream promises behind-the-scenes access that the networks don't offer.
