Audio broadcasting accounts start at just $4.99 per month and include 10 GB of Usage. For video live streaming a 100 GB account is just $19.99.
For live broadcasting, a camera and/or microphone connected to a computer running (free) RTMP encoding software would work. There are also dedicated stream devices that negate the need for a computer system. (You can even stream directly from a mobile device, such as a phone or tablet. This is not the most stable solution, but it does work reasonably well.)
We can simulcast your live stream to your Facebook Live and/or your You Tube Live account if desired.

EPISDOES & PLAYLISTS
Each message you upload, or live stream you Archive is assigned to an EPISODE. One episode can have an audio, video, pdf, and artwork image assigned to it. You can then assign your Episodes to your desired PLAYLIST(s). A PLAYLIST is a way to group your Episodes. Each Playlist can have its own Podcast feeds and Media Centers that you can embed anywhere.
You can have as many Podcast feeds as you would like. They can contain your audio, video, and / PDF files. You can then submit the feeds to iTunes to make your content available within their directory. This is an easy process.
We provide network Apps for Roku, Android, and Apple. We also provide custom apps (for just your Ministry – at no additional charge) for Android and Apple. You can assign multiple Playlists (and their corresponding Episodes – live and/or on-demand) to your Apps.
