Learn about Live Streaming with Uscreen!

Updated over a week ago

Live streaming is an excellent way to provide value and interact with your audience! Uscreen offers two options for live streaming that we will discuss in detail below. The first option is to use our Uscreen Live Studio. The second option is a more sophisticated streaming setup that utilizes third-party tools such as OBS.

If you have a mobile app you can even go live directly from your phone with Uscreen Live Studio for Mobile!

Live Streaming is available on our Growth, Pro, and Plus plans! You can view the full details of our pricing here.

Why Live Streaming Is Important

Live streaming is a powerful tool for memberships, offering a unique way to engage members, provide value, and ultimately, reduce churn. Churn, the rate at which members cancel their subscriptions, is a critical metric for the sustainability and growth of memberships. Here's how live streaming helps in reducing churn:

  • Community Building: Live events can foster a sense of community among members by encouraging discussions and shared experiences. This feeling of belonging can increase members' loyalty to your membership.

  • Regular Live Content: Regularly scheduled live streams ensure that members regularly receive new, valuable content, which can help justify the cost of the membership in their eyes.

  • Diverse Content Offerings: Incorporating live streaming into the content mix diversifies the offerings available to members, enhancing the overall perceived value of the membership.

  • And much more!

Comparing Uscreen Live Studio and Advanced Live Streaming
