YouTube announced today that it would be testing a limited trial of a new live streaming platform with select partners: Howcast, Next New Networks, Rocketboom and Young Hollywood. Below is BarelyPolitical.com’s YouTube channel talking about the live stream test:
Live streaming has become more and more popular this past year, and YouTube has decided to give it a go. Not to say they haven’t tried it before—YouTube has streamed a live U2 concert as well as events from the White House. But this time there is more at stake for users like you and I. This time, if all goes well, YouTube will roll this feature out to all of their users. How great would that be?!
