Livestream now supports geo-blocking
[permalink] 09.12.2014

Livestream Studio software screenshotLivestream added a new feature for Enterprise accounts called "Geo-Blocking." This new feature allows event owners to specify geographic regions that are able to watch their event. Often, there are events on Livestream that owners only want viewers from specific geographic regions to watch. Reasons to do this range from rights limitations to corporate privacy. Professional sports, for example, are often broadcasted both on television and on Livestream to increase viewership to a global audience. This is great for viewers but often the rights-holders want to require certain viewers in a geographic region to watch on the television instead of on Livestream. In this case, the event owner might choose to block the home country on Livestream but allow all other geographic regions to watch. The ability to geo-block their country allows them to control where their audience is watching the game, whether it be on television or on Livestream. To enable this functionality on your account you'll need a Livestream Platform Enterprise Plan. More here. [source]
