Top 5 Livestream Websites

Posted on

Streaming has been a part of history for years. The first form was as you may know the radio. It later made it to the television, and now you can access thousands of livestreams on sites all over the internet.

Livestreaming is a process of delivering media; live to an end-user. It’s mostly used for news and gaming, but there are other types of streams as well. Streaming can be a way to make an income, or just to entertain people. You can stream pretty much anything, and if you get a dedicated audience, you could quit your 9-5 job and spend your days streaming. It’s not something that happens over night though, you have to build an audience, with patience and the most important part is to have an awesome personality.

If this sounds like something you could pull off, I suggest you check out Twitch.tv, or one of the other livestream sites that I’ve included in this post. Even if you’re not interested in gaming, you may have something else to stream; in a way, you can always find an audience. You just have to choose the right website for your content.
