That livestream of your local city council meeting? Monetize!

You can now monetize your live events with advertising or paid options. A live event can be claimed in the new video manager like any other video and monetized with instream ads or paid options where you can set price by country. You can see more details on this in our Help Center on ads and paid livestreaming sections.

If you’re a local news outlet, would there be a market for you to charge for livestreaming a high school football rivalry game? Some other noteworthy local event?

Note this is only available to outlets with access to YouTube Live, which isn’t open to the general public yet.

If you’re one of the many people who’ve asked for YouTube Live but don’t have access yet, we want to thank you very much for your patience. We’ve developed these features with the expectation many more of you will eventually use YouTube Live, and like we said last year, this process takes time to roll out broadly.
