Livestream Premium Channel Owners now have access to the brand new Email to Watch feature. This allows Premium Channels to require all connected viewers to enter their email address after a specified amount of time in order to continue watching. The email requirement is streamlined for the viewer and is an easy one-step process. Want to embed the player on your own website? The Email to Watch feature applies to both the Livestream Channel Page & Embedded Player automatically.
The Email to Watch feature is particularly useful for Premium Producers who would like to broadcast a live event and then reach out to their viewers after the event has come to a close. To activate this feature, you must first own an active Livestream Premium Plan. Visit your Account Center and click the “Configure” button next to your Premium Channel. Scroll to the “Privacy and Audience Control” section. Configuration options can be found below:
* By default, this feature is disabled; To enable the Email to Watch feature, click the “Require Viewer Email” button.
* You can download the list of email addresses entered in CSV format at anytime by clicking the green “Download CSV” button. If you wish to clear this list, click “Clear List” beside it.
* The email requirement prompt will display immediately after the viewer has loaded the player. To delay this prompt, enter the number of minutes you would like to delay in the “Delay (minutes)” field.
We hope you enjoy.
