All Editors must agree:

How to schedule a livestream

Our goal is to broadcast live shows. However it is important that any live broadcasts is scheduled ahead of time to ensure that shows do not conflict in timing. There can only be one show at a time. 

In order to schedule:

  1. Login to the CNTV Channel
  2. Go to manage Manage Your Videos
  3. Go to Create
  4. Select Go Live
  5. Select Schedule a Stream
  6. Select Create New
  7. Fill in the details about the event
  8. Make a copy of the links that it will give you that you will need to livestream to that event

NB If you are using a platform like Zoom then you need to make sure that you've set up your system to link to YouTube and select the Custom Live Event option. When you go live you will be instructed to include the links you were given by YourTube. You can do this in advance, but your show will only go live as it has been scheduled.
