    We have now enabled live streaming on the Freedom! forums. If you are a live streamer or maybe thinking about it, now would be a great time to start. Channels added to the forums will be promoted both on the home page and on the new Streams Page in the forums.

    [​IMG]

    To add your channel go to the Strams > Channels > Submit Channel Additionally we will be featuring channel close to the 4k watch hour mark. If you have 3000 to 4000 watch hours, post below with your channel name and the amount of watch hours you currently have and we will add you to the featured list.

    See George's video below on how live streaming can help increase your watch hours.

    What are some popular live stream options? I know a lot of people stream video games but that doesn't suit my channel so well anymore. I've thought of streaming my project development but I don't usually talk when I tinker and then nobody would watch me, haha. :confused:

    This should be great help for my channel. I have been doing some livestreaming,but I rarely get even 1 person watching them.

    I've been doing multiple daily livestreams for about a week and my watch hours have nearly doubled and I've gained over half a dozen subscribers. They say slow and steady wins the race right?

    Maybe just chuck a camera up for when you are doing a build, doesn't really need talking in it. Or just have a 24/7 Danny cam :D

    This is meant to increase watch hours but for the smaller channels this won't help at all. If you don't have 4k watch hours then how are you meant to increase them

    I live stream every weekend (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) but not on YouTube. I stream on Twitch. Will Twitch be added to the "live stream" section of the forums sometime? Or will it just be for YouTube streamers?

    I like this, it's a good initiative. When I stream I actually only stream on Twitch, but i think this will help many others out there.

    I don't have clear how it works. Do I need to submit the streamming somewhere, or the system automaticly detects when am I streamming and this appears in that page?
