Restrictions on live streaming


Channels that are not in good standing will be automatically disabled for live streaming until the associated issue(s) are resolved. In-progress live events will be stopped if any videos on the channel receive strikes. You can check your channel's status here.


It is against Terms of Use to include third-party advertisements in live streams. This includes burned-in commercials (for example, video content from a television feed).
