  • Note that any time content is streamed on your channel, including the default clip and the preview window in Livestream Studio bandwidth is consumed.
  • To limit unwanted usage, producers can set a channel viewer limit from the configure channel page or make the channel private from the "privacy section" of the configure channel tab.
  • You can close a Premium plan at any time from the Plans tab of the My Account & Channels section.

  • Note that there is a minimum 30 day commitment (if purchased mid-month this includes the pro-rated partial month + 1 full month) for Livestream Premium accounts, users who cancel before this are still liable for the minimum commitment.

Advertising

Livestream Premium users can earn revenue through a growing number of Livestream ad partners.

Currently in-stream overlay advertising is enabled from the following providers:

To enable advertising on your channel you will first need to apply for a publisher ID directly through the above providers.

  • Note that in order to be approved for Google AdSense for Video you will need to contact Livestream Premium Support. Google requires that channels meet minimum viewership requirements and be reviewed by Google prior to approval.

Once you have entered your provider ID in the Manage Advertising section you will be able to begin serving ads on your channel.

  • Note that you will need to monitor your ad revenue and make any changes to your ad partner account directly through the console on the website of your ad partner.

For more details on advertising contact Livestream Premium Support through the contact section of your Livestream Premium Studio.


Adap.TV Companion Ads

Adap.TV now offers producers the ability to embed the Livestream Premium player with a 300x250 companion ad.

To do so: 1. Add the adap.tv javascript file in the web page by putting the following tag in the <head> section of the webpage:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://redir.adap.tv/redir/javascript/adaptvAdPlayer.js"></script>

2. Add an html div tag to contain the ad somewhere on the webpage. It has to have an id attribute of 'adaptvCompanionAd' so that the player knows to put the ad. Ads are 300x250 in size.

3. Ensure that the player is embedded with allowScriptAccess="always" and wmode="opaque" or "transparent".

4. Configure a zone that has those ads enabled on the Adap.TV console and set that zone in the Livestream Premium studio.
