Newsjacking with Nick Rishwain
Ross Brand with your Livestream Universe Update and Flash Briefing for Wednesday, April 18th, 2018.
Technode is reporting China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism shut down 370 live streaming apps after examining nearly 5-thousand of them. There are also some major players in China’s livestream industry that are under investigation, including two that received a combined one billion dollars in funding. Areas being investigated include content that promotes “violence, pornography, gambling, superstition, and other values harmful to public morality.”
Beyonce racked up the highest YouTube livestream viewership of any performance in Coachella’s history. She had 458,000 simultaneous live viewers during her Saturday set.
