All of us can not be sitting right in front of the T.V all the time during our favorite Live programs, generally the sports. We might be at our workplace or anywhere else with access to the broadband and broadband-enabled devices like the desktop PCs, laptops, Smartphones and now the tablets. Now, it would be cheating on the professional front, but there’s no harm in getting the quick, short bite of your favorite sports with the help of some live streaming tools/websites anywhere, or even on the go.
YouTube is now stepping into the zone of live event streams to give sites like UStream.tv a run for their money. Yes, the news that seems to be really exciting in the tech world right now, is that it has introduced a new section called YouTube Live that currently features live event streams, and will ultimately introduce live streaming tools on the YouTube platform.
As for the time being, ‘YouTube Live’ focuses on live event streams, primarily specific to the country in which you are accessing the site. Like, it has already started the live streaming of DLF IPL Season 4 matches currently making the highlights in the Indian subcontinent and also around the globe as there are players from almost all the international cricket teams.

Live Streaming is there in the news for almost about 2 years now and is really up and growing day by day. YouTube has also announced that they will be testing out the live streaming platform with some of their partners before the official roll out. This will also enable the YouTube to change its reputation of just being the site that showcases only the recorded videos.
There’s one more twist in the tale of YouTube Live – the live comments feature. You can log in and interact with other YouTube users on their live comments board while watching the stream. It will be great experience, especially during sports events between two countries.
Stay tuned for further updates on the same.
