Wow – a huge obstacle to using free services to stream your church events – ads – are a thing of the past with the new Livestream. The only real issue with the free, ad-free account type is that viewers will have to log-in to see your event.
From the announcement email:
Get full access to our suite of live video and live blogging tools – FREE! The suite includes encoding software for Mac and PC, ad-free event pages and mobile broadcasting to the web from the Livestream for Producers iPhone app
Unlike other streaming platforms new.livestream.com is going ad-free and never imposes banner ads, pre-roll or mid-roll video that typically clutter and disrupt watching events on the web or via mobile.
