I want to upgrade microsoft stream to create live events

Occasional Visitor

I have Office 365 Escencials from 6 years ago.

I want to use STREAM to publish live events.


Is it possible?


How much is the upgrade?


I don't want to upgrade o mix to E1 office 365 license.

I want only the STREAM service for live events and if it is possible, for guests.

Hi, going on the documentation, the live events feature in Microsoft Stream requires an encoder, which is extra and not included.  The simplest option is using Microsoft Teams:


“Plug in your laptop and go...

Produce the live event using Teams, a lightweight option to create the event and invite presenters and panelists to participate on their own devices“


These options are compared here.  


The licensing and requirements is covered here - Get started with Microsoft Teams live events.  Who can watch live events is mentioned here.


Hope some of that helps.
