  2. Is it permitted during the broadcast to mention “follow/subscribe to this channel on Twitch/Facebook/Twitter whatever to know when I go live again”?
  3. What if users need to enter an email to view the broadcast?
  4. What if the additional streaming platform requires an RSVP as well?
  5. Share additional questions in the comments below
