On June 19th, BeLive.tv announced new features and a brand new pricing plan on what had been a free beta. All current and new users can get a 14 day free trial of all the available features of the platform. After the trial, there will still be a free version that will have limited time and features.
In today's broadcast, I demonstrate all the new features (especially screen sharing, which I have been anxiously waiting to try!) and take you through a step by step demo of how to use BeLive.
Some of my favorite new options are the ability to have your own logo in the upper right hand corner of the screen, custom colors for your lower thirds, and the new frames. Frames can be uploaded to a broadcast to “frame” your window with any design of your choosing ( a fun opportunity to celebrate holidays and other special occasions!)
After testing several live streaming apps, I keep coming back to BeLive. The ease of use, the flexibility and features just suite my needs. While it's always great to have free tools available, the truth is that you WANT companies to be able to make money or else they will not survive. Just ask people who built a following on now non-existent platforms such as Huzza.
What do you think of the new BeLive? Post your comments below and let me know what your favorite tool for live streaming is and why.
