No, Amazon has not had enough of their self love. Amazon’s first-ever live TV show will debut tonight. Called Style Code Live, it will feature three exuberant presenters attempting to sell Amazon’s clothing stock. Yes, it’s a shopping channel. No, you probably won’t be able to endure it.
The first show will air at 9pm EST this evening with Rachel Smith, Lindsay Rodrigues & Frankie J. Grande and you’ll be able to watch it here. It will continue every week night, hosted by Lyndsey Rodrigues, Rachel Smith, and Frankie Grande. What can you expect? Learn more here.
We also have the brand new Livestream on Facebook or as we like to call it ,Facebook Live where you can create a webinar, podcast or just have your own show. Keep in mind that just like your Facebook posts, these are recorded for posterity. All of your friends will be able to see you in their stream and choose to join in. I just got done watching my friend Chris Green test this new app out and I’ve got to say that it was looking pretty good. At 8:30 in the morning he was able to get a crowd of 83 people on in just a few minutes. He was also able to pull in another Livestream’er into the mix. So this looks like another great tool for broadcasting your own live show.
Facebook finally began rolling out Live for all users today. But right now, you can only do it if you’re a select iPhone user in the US.
To begin livestreaming, simply tap the “Update Status” button and choose the Live Video icon (it looks like a silhouette with two halos).
Much like Periscope, you can describe what you’re filming before the broadcast begins, as well as the number of viewers who are watching you and a live feed of comments. You’ll also have the option to be notified when the streamer you’re watching goes live again.
Unlike Periscope though, you’ll only be able to see the names of your friends who are watching you.
Now that Live is available as a status update, Facebook is testing a new status update menu for select Android and iPhone users.
Here’s how to use Livestream on facebook: Simply tap “What’s on your mind?”, the menu will appear and can contain any future sharing features Facebook creates in the future.
