Liveguide is a mobile app that lets you explore 3,829,106 (and counting) live channels from Ustream, Twitch, Hitbox, YouTube, Viagame and Bambuser.
Cable television has been declining in popularity, largely due to the wide selection of video content that’s available for streaming online. Although many of the most popular services offer video on-demand, there’s a growing trend of live-streamed content. Liveguide acts as a sort of virtual remote, giving viewers access to live-streamed content from channels on services such as Ustream, Twitch and YouTube. Whether you’re wanting to watch a live business panel or the latest Boiler Room set, Liveguide can lead you to the right destination. It’s a well-designed app that’s as easy to browse and discover as it is to set up for repeated, personalized use.
Although some of the services that are available on Liveguide cater to a specific audience (such as Twitch for gamers), there’s something for everyone on the platform. Liveguide allows users to personalize their own guides, based on your interest in a variety of topics (news, sports, music, etc.). Using your saved preferences and interests, Liveguide can also notify you when the content that you want to watch is going live. It’s almost a preferable method of watching TV than traditional cable, especially if you have a Chromecast or Apple TV or another device that lets you stream from your mobile device to your television. There’s a huge selection of content being live-streamed at any given moment, and Liveguide offers a great way to stay on top of it all.
