Adding a countdown

Adding a countdown to your scheduled live events is a great way to inform your viewers when your live event starts. They can make room in their calendars ahead of time and invite others to join and watch your live stream. Consider it a marketing tool for your live streams which stirs up excitement and market your live event streams on all publishing platforms your Lightcast account is connected with.

A countdown can be added by scheduling a live event in your LIVE Channel.
Tip: Make sure that your LIVE Channel you create a live event for is embedded on your website with the Lightcast player, and is integrated on your Roku, FireTV, AndroidTV, AppleTV, iOS and Android Mobile apps, etc.
